am using date picker ,when i choose the date , it shows lik 28/02/2012, i need to get the day(tuesday) from the date .am using lik this,
function date()
{
var dt = $get("<%=deliveryTime.ClientID %>").value;
 
var d = new Date(dt);
                        var weekday = new Array(7);
                        weekday[0] = "Sunday";
                        weekday[1] = "Monday";
                        weekday[2] = "Tuesday";
                        weekday[3] = "Wednesday";
                        weekday[4] = "Thursday";
                        weekday[5] = "Friday";
                        weekday[6] = "Saturday";
 
                     var dtday = weekday[d.getDay()];
}
 
In IE its working fine , But in mozilla ,it shows undefined,but instead of this
 ( var dtday = weekday[d.getDay()];),
if am using
 document.write("Today is " + weekday[d.getDay()]);

 
it shows the correct day , How could i get the day in mozilla

Solution 1

This is almost the exact example as given on w3cschool. If I execute it in firefox it doesn't give any errors. Try their example directly on the site:"http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/jsref_getday.asp[^]
 
This would mean that $get("<%=deliveryTime.ClientID %>").value isn't returning a valid date. I can't see what the value is, but I would check it out.
 
Good luck!

ya actually u r correct , am using the same example but when i use
 
document.write("Today is " + weekday[d.getDay()]);
 
it shows the day , but i want to pass the day lik argument so i need to assign lik
 

var dtday = weekday[d.getDay()];
 
but var dtday = weekday[d.getDay()]; this part is not working , shows undefined

How about returning that value from the function, using this line:
return weekday[d.getDay()];

ya nij checked with alert ,i.e) alert(weekday[d.getDay()]),
 
this also shows undefined

What is the value of dt and d in firefox?
priya from Madras at 29-Feb-12 4:54am
   
dt is date lik Mon 29/02/2012 d is value lik 1 or 2 something lik that

I think the error is because of the 'Mon' part in the date. If that would be stripped off it should work.
