im using a formatted text field with simple date format dd/mm/yyyy on my user interface

before executing a function i want to call a method which checks that the data in these text fields conforms with the format before proceeding.

how could i do this in code?

thanks

You can use the Patern/Matcher clases and check it with a regex.

Actually I want to correct you that in SimpleDateFormatter 'MM' is different then 'mm'.

If you want to take the Month of the Year then you should use 'MM' or if you want to take the minutes of the hour.. then you should use 'mm'.



I hope everything is make clear to you now.
If any concern then revert back.

seems to work as far as major inconsistencys in the inputs goes but it does accept input in the form 00/00/00 AND 00/00/0000 would rather limit this to one date format if possible.

Then check the length of the string before trying the parse
(i.e. yourTextInput.length( ) == 10)
