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...

Sorry, but I have to vote this way down. Your regular expression (or @Chris's) is not robust enough for what I would consider "real world" data. Especially if this is used on any kind of public web site, I would be afraid of JavaScript injection attacks and other things (depending on its usage)....

The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.

The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.

United Kingdom United Kingdom
I've been involved in object-oriented software development since 2006, when I graduated in Information and TLC Engineering. I've been working for several software companies / departments, mainly on Microsoft and Sun/Oracle technologies. My favourite programming language is C#, next comes Java.
I love design patterns and when I need to resolve a problem, I try to get the best solution, which is often not the quickest one.

"On the best teams, different individuals provide occasional leadership, taking charge in areas where they have particular strengths. No one is the permanent leader, because that person would then cease to be a peer and the team interaction would begin to break down. The structure of a team is a network, not a hierarchy ..."

For almost 30 years I have been working with computers, learning a myriad of languages and participating in various computing environments.

Though I have been mentoring other developers for the last decade, I have recently found a strong interest in writing and am learning to translate the fun of in-person teaching to something I can get into article form.

I enjoy following technology trends, new gadgets and trying to guess where innovation will lead us next (I'm kinda holding out for a robot-served utopia, but willing to submit to our future robot leaders).
