    Get last day of month


      I am complete new and have very limited knowledge of Javascript.

      My question is how can I get the last day of the current month but 2 years in the future when a pdf form is opened.


      Thanks in advance,

          You take the current time, and:

          - add two years to it

          - if the current month is December, add another year and change it to


          - otherwise, add one month

          - set the date to the 1st

          - deduct 24 hours

          Then you have the last day of the current month, 2 years in the future.

            No need to check the month and adjust the year manually, the date automatically does this.


            Just add 25 months to the first of the current month, then subtract a day:


            var d = new Date(); // Get current date

            d.setDate(1); // Set to first day of current month

            d.setMonth(d.getMonth() + 25); // Add 25 months (2 years + 1 month)

            d.setDate(d.getDate() - 1); // Subtract a day to get last day of previous month


            event.value = d.toDateString();
