How do I add days to a date in javascript?  What I want to do is simply add 7 days to a date.

Also can I convert a string to a date?  the date I'll be using will be coming in as a string formatted dd mmm yyyy

Thanks in advance,

Bill

To answer your questions in reverse order:

var d = new Date("15 Aug 2004")

with (d) {
      setDate(getDate() + 7);
}

The <BR> things appear to be html.  I get a syntax error.  My function looks like this...


function MoveRight()
{
      var d = document.all;
      
      var dt = new Date(d.hidStartDate.value);<BR>
      with (dt) {<BR>     setDate(getDate() + 7);<BR>}
      
      
      
}

OIC the <BR> things seem to be a result of copying and pasting and nothing more.

Works fine.  Thanks amg.
