var f = this.getField("arrival"); f.value = util.printd("HH:MM", new Date());
and tried adding the variables i could find to add 2 hours two it. I tried using the adding the 5 days format i found in the community and tweaking it to my need to no avail:
var f = this.getField("arrival");var twohours = .83 * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000;var theNewDate = new Date (finalTime); f.value = util.printd("HH:MM", new Date());
can anyone help?
You set twohours then don't do anything with the value. Take a closer look at the examples you are trying to adapt. You need to understand what you use.
It is possible to add 2 hours to the current time of a given time of day if the result does not cross the end of the day or the tme in which there is a change for Daylight Savinngs Time. One can split the time format inot hours and minutes and then adjust the value for the hours.
var f = this.getField("arrival"); var now = new Date(); var twohours = 2 * 60 * 60 * 1000; var theNewDate = new Date(now.getTime()+twohours); f.value = util.printd("HH:MM", theNewDate);
THANK YOU!!! i have been trying every possible combo of variables i could think of or find.
