Does anyone know how to increment a date with JavaScript. I'm trying to take one date, say 9/18/2001, and add seven days to it, to get 9/25/2001. Thanks in advance.

The following article will prob help:

as well as a personal one I wrote:

Both take you step by step thru writing two different day-type programs. But most likly it will be as easy as

myDateVar += 8;

If I'm wrong or further questions please ask

Here's a script I wrote to print out the date, if anyone would like to use it:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!-- hide from Ye Olde browsers
// Zeke Runyon | [email protected] | zekeworld.home.dhs.org
// zekemon date stamp function v1.0
function dateStamp() {
var months = new Array("January","February","March","April","May"," June","July","August","September","October","Novem ber","December");
var days = new Array("Sunday","Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thu rsday","Friday","Saturday");
var gotdate = new Date();
var day = days[gotdate.getDay()];
var month = months[gotdate.getMonth()];
var date = gotdate.getDate();
var year = gotdate.getYear();
if (year < 2000) { year = year + 1900; }
document.write(day + ", " + month + " " + date + ", " + year);
// come out from hiding -->

To print out the date, just say
