textfield date autocomplete

Hi experts,
does anybody know a javascript that i can use for a textfield that can autocomplete the entered date.

for example

if someobody enter
9 -> show current moth with day 9 = 09.07.2009
15 -> show current moth with day 15 = 15.07.2009
today -> show current date = 09.07.2009
friday -> show date of next friday = 10.07.2009

and maybe after the user type 9 the cursor will be after this position and not at the end of the date.

does anybody know such a script?

I have not seen a script that would do this.  It seems like it might get complicated to provide what you describe but is possible, at least for certain browsers.  If no other expert posts to let you know of one then I am afraid you will need to write it (or have it written for you).

Let me know if you have a question about this.  Don't give up just because of this post but I wanted to make sure you had a response.  I know of a lot of scripts, even autocomplete ones, but haven't seen one exactly like what you suggest.

A thought ... if you are looking at improving and speeding up entry of dates then look at a calendar picker.  Those are the common thing to use and make entering dates pretty easy.
