Hi,

I have created a Date field in the Activity Entity in CRM 2011 and need to set a validation so that a user cannot enter a future date.

Please advice how to set this up.

Thanks

Hi,

You can use this function on change event of your date field. Just need to change the date field logical name on the first line of the function.

function checkFutureDate(){
	var enteredDate = Xrm.Page.getAttribute("<date field logical name>").getValue();
	var currentDate = new Date();
	currentDate.setHours(0, 0, 0, 0);

	if (enteredDate > currentDate) {
		alert("Future date is not allowed.");
		return false;
	}
}

It gave a warning but accepted the value.

Is there anyway to block it from accepting the value if its future date.

Add following line before "return false;" statement in the function.

Xrm.Page.getAttribute("<date field logical name>").setValue(null);
