    Comparing two Date values in ActionScript - possible to compare whole day values?

    Neal Hudson Level 1

      I need to be able to compare the number of whole days between two dates in ActionScript, is this possible?

       

      I'd like to test if one date is 7 days or less after today, and if so is it one day or less (if it's before today this also counts).

       

      The workaround I have in place is using the .time part of the date field:

       

      // Get the diffence between the current date and the due date

      var dateDiff:Date = new Date();

      dateDiff.setTime (dueDate.time - currentDate.time);

      if (dateDiff.time < ( 1 * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000 ))

      return "Date is within 1 day");

      else if (dateDiff.time < ( 7 * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000 ))

      return "Date is within 7 days");

       

       

       

       

      As I say - this is only a workaround, I'd like a permanent solution to allow me to check the number of whole days between 2 dates. Is this possible?

      Thanks
