    Problem creating a Date() object

    This worked just fine the other day.

    For some reason, it no longer works.

    var start = new Date("01/12/2014");

    I get "invalid date" when inspecting the start variable.

    ???

    Well, it might just be your code is broken.

    I tried this

    Code:
    var start = new Date("01/12/2014");
    
    console.log(">>>"+ start.toGMTString() );
    and out popped

    STOP using $ prefix on JavaScript variable names...
    Please remember to wrap any code you have in forum tags:-

    [CODE]...[/CODE] [HTML]...[/HTML] [PHP]...[/PHP]

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...

    You are correct.

    It turned out that the code was broken in another area due to the removal of a couple of html elements that was referenced in the script.

    Javascript is such a strange language in how a small oversight can work its way back to something not even related, such as my Date() code.

    Thanks.
