Keying Future Date

Hi all

 

In the date field, I would like to enter a future date which is 1yr in future from today's date.

 

I am using a code expression (in delphi) and somehow not able to get it right. The below code is not working for me so any help is much appreciated.

 

DateTimetoFormatStr(aqDateTime.AddMonths(Today(), 24 '%d/%m/%Y')

 

 

 

 

  • Perhaps for delfi there is a problem in quotation marks (although both work for me in JScript). Try single quotes with my expression:

    aqConvert.DateTimeToFormatStr(aqDateTime.AddMonths(aqDateTime.Today(), 24), '%d/%m/%Y');

  • Full expression with example:

    var future_date = aqConvert.DateTimeToFormatStr(aqDateTime.AddMonths(aqDateTime.Today(), 24), "%d/%m/%Y");

      Thank you for the example.

       

      Unfortunately it says invalid expression.

        This got expected as a valid expression but still not giving me the desired result of setting the date of 2yrs from current date.

         

        aqConvert.DateTimeToFormatStr(aqDateTime.AddMonths(aqDateTime.Today), 24, '%d/%m/%Y')
