Date Validation using DataAssist

I'm trying to validate a date field with min and max dates. I followed the instructions posted in your WebAssist Help System, with no success. This is the code DataBrigge generates:

$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateDT((isset($_POST["hex_Fecha_Instalacion"])?$_POST["hex_Fecha_Instalacion"]:"") . "",true,".*","mktime(0, 0, 0, date(\"m\") , date(\"d\")-7, date(\"Y\"));","mktime(0, 0, 0, date(\"m\") , date(\"d\")-0, date(\"Y\"));",true,".*","","",true,10);

Min Date = current date - 7 days
Max Date = current date

Please see line 21 of the attached file.
Please advice...

it looks like you are entering the min and max dates as php without including the php brackets:

php:
mktime(0, 0, 0, date("m") , date("d")-7, date("Y"));



try entering it as:

php:
<?php echo(mktime(000date("m") , date("d")-7date("Y"))); ?>


instead.

Nop, it doesn't work as suggested. The code I'm entering is straight from the WebAssist Help System, using WA Server Validations interface. Please see attachment... If I enter the dates as static (MinDate = 05/0/2014, MaxDate 05/09/2014) it will work. The problem is when using dynamic values.

use this code for the min date:

<?php echo(date("m/d/Y", mktime(0, 0, 0, date("m") , date("d")-7, date("Y")))); ?>



and enter this for the max

<?php echo(date("m/d/Y")); ?>




I will forward this to the documentation team also.

Nop, it doesn't work. Probably this can help you:
If I enter a static date value with the Validate Time "checked", the validation fails. It only works with the Validate Time option "unchecked". The WebAssist Help System mentions that in some instances both check boxes should be selected. Obviously, everything that I try, I check it both ways. Probably the script is having problems validating this mktime function. I look at it and everything seems ok to me. I have no idea. Please advise...

  It only works with the Validate Time option "unchecked".  



your date picker does not pass the time. In the case of a date picker, you need to leave the validate time option unchecked.

Ok, with the option unchecked it doesn't work
