Javascript Max Date

Hello

I was wondering if there was a function that I could use that would select the maximum date out of an array of date entries. Could you use the javascript Math.max function and put in a date instead of a number? Just wondering

You can use Math.max after converting the date to YYYYMMDD format.

You could also just use the getTime() method to get a number representation of the Date object.

To quote you from the first post in this thread:

That's the array I'm talking about. Is it an array of Date objects or an array of strings representing dates?

So can you give some examples? What format are they in?

You can either use the method suggested by hsriat in post #2, convert the strings into Date objects and use getTime() or just compare them using < or >.
