Hi Experts,

as the title suggest... I need an if/else script that checks a form field to see whether it contain the current year.

Then runs a different code if it does or doesnt contain it.

Please help!! many thanks in advance

This will work assuming the date information is entered correctly, you may need to extend to allow for more variance in the date input.

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Test</title>
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
  $('a').click(function(e) {
    e.preventDefault();
    var dt = new Date($('#current-date').val());
    var nw = new Date();
    nw.getDate();
    if (dt.getYear() == nw.getYear()) {
      $('#result').html('Date is the same as this year');
    }
    else {
      $('#result').html('Date is NOT the same as this year');
    }
  });
});
</script>
<style type="text/css">
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div><a href="#">Click to Test</a></div>
Input here <input type="text" id="current-date" />
<div id="result">
</div>
</body>
</html>
