Error handling / date validation in Fusion


Level 9



I am trying to convert a string to a date using the parseDate() function. As it is possible that the incoming string is not a parseable date, I would like to prevent into getting an error. Is there any easy possibility to validate a string as being a valid date before parsing?


Thanks in advance.

If you know what the string formatting should be, like if your string should always be YYYY-MM-DD, then you could use regex to make sure that the string matches that pattern.
