is there a way to compare date with today function?

I need to change status if user chooses date less than today.

Thank you very much.

Dear Kateřina,
Sorry for the delay, lots of SPAM being sent to the forum and it takes time to filter it out. For a more speedy reply, please, contact us at

As for comparing dates, here's how you can access field values and get them on change - ... eld-values

For the default Date field, something like this would work:

Code: Select all

function compareDateToToday(date){
  var q = new Date();
  var m = q.getMonth();
  var d = q.getDate();
  var y = q.getFullYear();

  var today = new Date(y,m,d);
    alert("Date is before today");
  else if (today<date){
    alert("Date is after today")
    alert("Date is today");

  var date = new Date(fd.field('Date').value());
