Your statement of, "I wanted to validate text inputed by a user as they were typing to tell them if it was a valid date." seems to be a bit misleading. I was under the impression that your code would start off returning true until I entered a non-number character, invalid separator, or invalid...
Datejs could be a possible alternate helper, or if you are going the way of jQuery, check out jQuery validation engine.
Hi there, so you're reading this? I probably ought to tell you something helpful then...
Okay well, I'm 17 from London, UK and I have been programming since I was 8 years old. You'll see from my profile I've dabbled in a lot of different areas and I do know what I'm talking about so as they say "gimme some respect yeah?"
I've done GCSE's (got 7A*'s, 2A's and a B in French) and am now studying for my AS-Levels (Math, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry). My main aim is to go to university to study electronic engineering and then work in robotics (preferably humanoid but most of the field is interesting).
Thanks for reading,
