Hi,
I have a field which displays the date in the local time . I want to write a function to validate if the date and time is correct .How do i accomplish this. This should take care of all languages not only english.
I am using the toLocaleString() function to convert the date to the local time .
I would really appreciate your Input on this.
Thanks

what do you mean "in local time"?
you want to display client's local time or
the time on your server?

Let me explain the problem more clearly.
I have a field where the user enters the field in mm/dd/yyyy format. I use the tolocaleString to convert the date/time in the regional format.
For example if i enter the date as 1/12/2003.
Then it automatically converts the date as
Sunday, January 12, 2003 12:00:00 AM if my settings are in English. It gets converted to equivalent date and time if the setting is french and so on.
I want to write a function which validates this date and time Sunday, January 12, 2003 12:00:00 AM
is valid or not.
Let me know if you need additional clarification.
Thanks
