I am assuming this is a basic calculation question. New to Adobe LiveCycle Forms.

I have a simple form containing a table. The table appears as such:

Text Formatted as Date/Time FieldsHeader 3
Monday user wil choose the beginning date (Date/Time) this is DateTimeField1
Tuesdaythis should calculate DateTimeField1 + 1
Wednesdaythis should calculate DateTimeField1 + 2
Thursdaythis should calculate DateTimeField1 + 3
Fridaythis should calculate DateTimeField1 + 4
Saturdaythis should calculate DateTimeField1 + 5
Sundaythis should calculate DateTimeField1 + 6

Calculations are performed after the date is chosen for Monday. My mind tells me the simple calculation of DateTimeField1 + 1 is not going to work (and in fact doesn't!) as it needs to change Monday to a number first. I saw on another thread the following:

 

Num2Date(Date2Num(Date(DateTimeField1), "DD.MM.YYYY")+7, "DD.MM.YYYY")

Thought this was going to get me close. No cigars though!

Any quick help is greatly appreciated. And since I am new to this, details about what needs to be changed would be great too!

Thanks

The attached calculates dates for next six days starting Monday. It forces the start day to be a Monday also.

// form1.page1.mon::exit - (FormCalc, client)

var dayNum = Date2Num($.formattedValue,"MM/DD/YYYY")

form1.page1.dayOfWeek.execCalculate()

if (dayOfWeek.rawValue == "Mon") then

          tues.rawValue = Num2Date(dayNum+1,"MM/DD/YYYY")

          wed.rawValue = Num2Date(dayNum+2,"MM/DD/YYYY")

          thurs.rawValue = Num2Date(dayNum+3,"MM/DD/YYYY")

          fri.rawValue = Num2Date(dayNum+4,"MM/DD/YYYY")

          sat.rawValue = Num2Date(dayNum+5,"MM/DD/YYYY")

          sun.rawValue = Num2Date(dayNum+6,"MM/DD/YYYY")

else

          xfa.host.messageBox("The selected date is not a Monday.")

          tues.rawValue = null

          wed.rawValue = null

          thurs.rawValue = null

          fri.rawValue = null

          sat.rawValue = null

          sun.rawValue = null

endif
