Hi,

<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
var d = document;
var validate = function( field ) {
var today = new Date();
var field = ( typeof( field ) === "object" ) ? field : d.getElementById( field );
   if ( field && field.value.length ) {
   var hold = [];
   var stamp = [ ( today.getMonth() + 1 ), today.getDate(), today.getFullYear() ];
   var date = field.value.split("-");
      for ( var i = 0; i < date.length; i++ ) {
         var num = Number( date[ i ] );
         hold[ i ] = num;
         hold[ i ] = (( hold[ i ] > stamp[ i ] || !hold[ i ] ) ? stamp[ i ] : hold[ i ] );
         hold[ i ] = (( hold[ i ] < 10 ) ? "0" : "" ) + hold[ i ]; 
      } (( hold[ 2 ] && String( hold[ 2 ] ).length < 4 ) ? hold[ 2 ] = stamp[ 2 ] : void( 0 ));
   field.value = hold.join("-");
   } 
};

Hi,

i made it to react, that if you provide year lower than a usual 4 digit format, then it will automatically converted to the current year. The format must be on this entry 08-06-1994 to able for that to work.
