How do I occupy a text field using javascript?

I am trying to occupy a text field (t_employment__start_date)on my aspx web page using javascript.  The function is contained in another file that the page calls (I know this is mapped correctly because another function is used and working correctly on the page).  This is the javascript function I created:


function PopulateDate()
{
var currentTime = new Date();
var month = currentTime.getMonth() + 1;
var day = currentTime.getDate();
var year = currentTime.getFullYear();
document.getElementById('t_employment__start_date').value =(month + "/" + day + "/" + year);
}


Attached is the source for the web page

Any advice? Thanks.

nothing wrong in this script
<input id='t_employment__start_date'>
<script>
function PopulateDate(){
  var currentTime = new Date();
  var month = currentTime.getMonth() + 1;
  var day = currentTime.getDate();
  var year = currentTime.getFullYear();
  document.getElementById('t_employment__start_date').value =(month + "/" + day + "/" + year);
}
PopulateDate()
</script>

Open in new window

just make sure you call PopulateDate() after html element, or call this function on body onLoad event

<body onLoad="PopulateDate()">
