try this
dateParts = "dd/mm/yy".split("/");
var date = new Date(dateParts[2], parseInt(dateParts[1]) - 1, dateParts[0]);

or

var date = Date.parse("dd/mm/yy");

or

dateParts = "dd/mm/yy".split("/");
var dateStamp = Date.UTC(dateParts[2], parseInt(dateParts[1]) - 1, dateParts[0]);

that last one converts it to a unix time stamp that you can use in the date methods.

hi MMDeveloper

Thanks for input.

I tried with the
new Date(yy, mm-1, dd)
but doesn't work.....seems like you need 'yy' as 'yyyy' e.g. 1990 instead of 90.

I overcame whole issue by setting format of calendar to be dd/mm/yyyy, but a solution to this would be good if possible.
