Hi,

I am practicing some JS and have the following question:

An invoice is due and payable in 90 days. Write a function that will display that
date.

I have got as far as the following code however of course this just returns a number.

var now = new Date();
invoice_date = now.getDate()+90;
document.write(invoice_date);

Can someone advise the best way to manage this?

check this

var d=new Date();
var milliseconds = d.getTime() + (90*24*60*60*1000);
document.write(new Date(milliseconds));

This returns full date:

<script type="text/javascript">
var myDate=new Date();
myDate.setDate(myDate.getDate()+90);
alert(myDate);
</script>

Here it is:

<script type="text/javascript">
var myDate=new Date();
myDate.setDate(myDate.getDate()+90);

document.write(myDate + "<br/>");
document.write(myDate.getMonth() + "<br/>");
document.write(myDate.getDate());

</script>
