<script language = "Javascript">

 */

// Declaring valid date character, minimum year and maximum year

var dtCh= "/";

var minYear=1900;

var maxYear=2100;
 

function isInteger(s){

	var i;

    for (i = 0; i < s.length; i++){   

        // Check that current character is number.

        var c = s.charAt(i);

        if (((c < "0") || (c > "9"))) return false;

    }

    // All characters are numbers.

    return true;

}
 

function stripCharsInBag(s, bag){

	var i;

    var returnString = "";

    // Search through string's characters one by one.

    // If character is not in bag, append to returnString.

    for (i = 0; i < s.length; i++){   

        var c = s.charAt(i);

        if (bag.indexOf(c) == -1) returnString += c;

    }

    return returnString;

}
 

function daysInFebruary (year){

	// February has 29 days in any year evenly divisible by four,

    // EXCEPT for centurial years which are not also divisible by 400.

    return (((year % 4 == 0) && ( (!(year % 100 == 0)) || (year % 400 == 0))) ? 29 : 28 );

}

function DaysArray(n) {

	for (var i = 1; i <= n; i++) {

		this[i] = 31

		if (i==4 || i==6 || i==9 || i==11) {this[i] = 30}

		if (i==2) {this[i] = 29}

   } 

   return this

}
 

function isDate(dtStr){

	var daysInMonth = DaysArray(12)

	var pos1=dtStr.indexOf(dtCh)

	var pos2=dtStr.indexOf(dtCh,pos1+1)

	var strMonth=dtStr.substring(0,pos1)

	var strDay=dtStr.substring(pos1+1,pos2)

	if (strMonth.charAt(0)=="0" && strMonth.length>1) strMonth=strMonth.substring(1)

	for (var i = 1; i <= 3; i++) {

		if (strYr.charAt(0)=="0" && strYr.length>1) strYr=strYr.substring(1)

	}

	month=parseInt(strMonth)

	day=parseInt(strDay)

	year=parseInt(strYr)

function ValidateForm(){

	var dt=document.frmSample.txtDate

	if (isDate(dt.value)==false){
