Needing some help

Post by raymondporteous » Mon Sep 28, 2015 9:40 pm

Hi All
I am new here, forgive my errors in advance.
I am working on a new project after a few years away. I have not really got into NeoBook that much, but now finding myself getting excited. My question is...
I need my a simple date passed script. Let me explain. I have a field in my app that has a expiry date, if the days date passes that expiry date I want an animated image to go from HideObject to showObject, however if the date is updated it must hideobject again. I have tried so many times but can\t work it out. Its doing my head in.

Any help welcomed
Thanks.

So what is the question? How to compare two dates? If so, then...
0) set expiry date in your pub and convert it to a number [Y] using DateToNum with appropriate format.
Checking routine:
1) get current local date from predefined global variable [DateShort]
2) convert it to a number [X] using DateToNum with appropriate format.
3) Check if [X]>=[Y], then date has expired.
