I have two text boxes

1.  First text box is defaulted to the curent date + 5 business days. 

2.  When i pick the date from the second text box, I want the date in the fisrt text box = date in second text box + 5 business days.


The code i have below is currently working fine but the fist fidn't added 5 business days because i don't know how to add into it from txt2.

How can I accomplish it?



<cfparam name="currentdate" default="#businessDaysAdd(now(),5))#">

<cfform name="fform">

   txt1: <cfinput type="datefield" value="#dateformat(current, "mm/dd/yyyy")#" name="txt1" bind="cfc:app.home.cfc.bu.getfinaldate({txt2@change})">

   txt2: <cfinput type="datefield" name="txt2" value="">





<cffunction name="getfinaldate" access="remote">

        <cfargument name="txt2">

         <cfreturn "#arguments.txt2#">

    In your cfc, use parsedate to convert the text to a date, then use dateadd to add the five days and dateformat to convert it back to a string.

    Note you have a typo: 2 closing component tags. In any case, the following should work


    <cfform name="fform">

    <!--- Set bindOnload to yes, making the bind to take effect the moment the page is loaded. --->

    <cfinput type="datefield"  name="txt1" bind="cfc:app.home.cfc.bu.getFinalDate({txt2})" bindOnload="yes">

    <cfinput type="datefield" name="txt2">







    <cffunction name="getFinalDate" access="remote" returntype="string">

            <cfargument name="dateArg">

            <!--- If argument undefined or not a date, then default to date of today --->

            <cfif (not isDefined("arguments.dateArg")) or (not isDate(arguments.dateArg))>

                <cfset var dt = now()>


                <cfset var dt = parseDateTime(arguments.dateArg)>


            <!--- Add 5 days--->

            <cfset var updatedDt = dateAdd("d",5,dt)>

            <!--- Format --->

            <cfset var formattedDt = dateformat(updatedDt, "mm/dd/yyyy")>


             <cfreturn formattedDt>
