How to Validate User Input into a date field on a delphi form

Norm-al asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-23
I have a data entry form that allows users to enter in sales dates. I would like to restrict the date entry field so that they can only enter in anything from today and back up to 7 days. This will prohibit fat-finger mistakes where the user sometimes puts in the wrong year! Thanks!
