Validating dates


Level 7

Hello - I have a few date fields with validations to MM/DD/YYYY and when users enter another format it only warns them. Is there a way to stop the user from submitting (for example: in Workspace), as it stalls the following script since it doesn't get the desired pattern.

Hi Aditya,

In addition to warning the user that the date is in the wrong format, you could clear the field (e.g. this.rawValue = ""). Then on your submit button you could do a check to see if the date fields are empty. If they are, alert the user else submit the form. Example:

if (dateField.rawValue == "") {

    // tell user to enter a valid date


else {

    // submit the form
