default date value in input box

Hi,

I have a querie that you can update after putting the date in the input box. Is there a way to put today's date by default in this box, but be able to change the date to a different date to override todays date?

Cheers
<form action="<?php echo $SCRIPT_NAME ?>" method="get">
Date:
<input size="10" type="text" name="today" value=<?PHP echo $today;?>>&nbsp;</input>


<A HREF="#" onClick="cal1x.select(document.forms[0].today,'anchor1x','dd-NNN-yyyy'); return false;" TITLE="Today" NAME="today" ID="anchor1x">
<IMG SRC="images/cal.JPG"></A>

<button value="Update" type="submit">Update</button>
</form>

Try something like this:

<input size="10" type="text" name="today" value="<?php echo date('r'); ?>" />

The ways of handling date and time strings are described in this article.  You may find it helpful.

Hi Ray,

Thanks for your post. I know how to put today's date in by default. The only thing I am having trouble with is overriding when you change it on the web page.

<input size="10" type="text" name="today" value="<?php echo date('d-M-Y'); ?>" />

Doing this brings the default date like I want, but when I change the date to say last week on the web page, the value displayed stays as todays date.

Can you please post a more complete example of your code?  I think I can show you how to use a PHP variable to carry this information to the right places.

Attached is the code for the date and the query that uses the date.

Is this more or less what you wanted?
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" ID="jscal1x">
     var cal1x = new CalendarPopup("testdiv1");
     cal1x.setCssPrefix("TEST");
     cal1x.showNavigationDropdowns();
     </SCRIPT>
<form action="<?php echo $SCRIPT_NAME ?>" method="get">
Date:
<input size="10" type="text" name="today" value=<?PHP echo $datum;?>>&nbsp;</input>


<A HREF="#" onClick="cal1x.select(document.forms[0].today,'anchor1x','dd-NNN-yyyy'); return false;" TITLE="Today" NAME="today" ID="anchor1x">
<IMG SRC="images/cal.JPG"></A>

<button value="Update" type="submit">Update</button>
</form>

I'm not following this.  In the code you posted, $datum is an undefined variable.  You will get a Notice or a NULL value in the <input> control named "today".

You might also want to put quotes around the string in the value= attribute of the input tag.

Henk_du_ToitAuthor Commented:
Sorry I was playing around with it... $datum should be $today. It works perfectly, the only thing I want to achieve is to bring today's date up by default and be able to change it to any other date with that date being the new value of the input box..

Henk_du_ToitAuthor Commented:
I have fixed it. Thanks for your help anyway..

Attached is what I did to fix it
global $today;

if (isSet($_GET['today'])) {

$today	= $_GET['today'];
} else {
$today	= date('d-M-Y');
}
