require date to be two weeks in advance

I need to create a form that when the user selects the date required field it will only allow them to choose a date at least two weeks in the future....thanks

RE: require date to be two weeks in advance

I think you need to set up a Java Script validation in the field properties.

Can't help you with that but I guess that someone will be able to in one of the Java forums on TT

RE: require date to be two weeks in advance

thanks for you responce I was able to figure it out. I created a date field and and put the following script in the custom calculation script box

var d1 = new Date();
var num = d1.valueOf();
num += 1000 * 60 * 60 * 24 * 14;
var d2 = new Date(num);
event.value =util.printd("mm/dd/yyyy", d2);

worked like a charm it can be modified to calculate out any number of days just by changing the last value in the num line to the number of days you want.....

RE: require date to be two weeks in advance


I am very new to Adobe and know absolutely nothing about scripts. Any idea for a script that would limit a time frame in a cell? i.e.  The date entered in the frame must be within the past 3 months.

RE: require date to be two weeks in advance

ok I am sure you can do it with a script but I would not be you man.....I am really bad at scripting. I can take a script and be able to follow it and make some adjustments but from scratch I SUCK........I would probably start a new post at this site. there are some really good people here and they have helped me many times......wish I could help you......sorry
