Just replace the - with " " (space) and pass it to the below javascript

http://www.trans4mind.com/personal_development/JavaScript/time2.htm
function getTheDay(aText)



{



myDays= 



["Sunday","Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thursday","Friday","Saturday","Sunday"]



myDate=new Date(eval('"'+aText.value+'"'))



document.form1.textDay.value=myDays[myDate.getDay()]



}

Open in new window

no need for eval

new Date(aText.value.replace(/\-/g," "))
