I have written the attached code for two textbox controls (OpenDateInsertTextBox, ClosingDateInsertTextBox) attached to ajax calendar extenders to compare each other so that the ClosingDate is never before the OpenDate. Unfortunately the compare only works when the OpenDates day is less than the ClosingDates day, i.e. OpenDate: 15/07/2009 ClosingDate: 13/08/2009 flags an error?
