How to Validate Forms with ASP.NET MVC 2 Data Annotations: Listing 4.

JavaScript to Perform WithinDays Validation in the Client Browser

    <script type="text/javascript">
      Sys.Mvc.ValidatorRegistry.validators["withindays"] = 
        function (rule) {
        // convert prior and subsequent parameters to 
        // milliseconds(multiply by 86400000).

          + 1) * 86400000;

        var today = Date.parse((new Date()).toDateString());

        var dd = parseInt(mdy[1]);
        var yy = parseInt(mdy[2]);
        yy = yy < 30 ? yy + 2000 : yy; // need to make Y2K behavior 
                                                  // conform with .NET
        // Basic validation for day & month because 
        // JS Date function allows higher/lower values
        // Yes, I know Feb has 29 days only during 
        // leap year ... like I said, basic validation.
