    Firstly thanks to DigitalPoint and its users for providing me many help and solution previously.

    I have a new problem. I have the following form that have a date field with date vale.

    <form name="signup" onsubmit="return Valid(this);">
    <input type="text" name="date" value="09/22/2011">
    <input type="submit">
    </form>

    I need a JavaScript that will take the date value on form submit and split it to 3 parts (such as month, day, year) and then return.
    So that I can insert separately these 3 parts in my MySql table (3 fields) during the form submit.

    Like bellow:
    Month Day Year
    ------ ----- ------
    09 22 2011

    This should be done by server side... But if you need this functionallity in javascript, you can use:

    
    var foo = "09/22/2011";
    var arr = foo.split("/");
    alert(arr[0])
    alert(arr[1])
    alert(arr[2])

    Yea, I think using PHP would be best for this, but if you are using a JS calendar or any other type of JS to handle it then you will want to use the .split function like in the example above.

    I have some code like below, What is wrong on it ? I am getting error.

    onClick: function () {
    $.ajax({
    type: 'POST',
    url: 'http://www.mysite.com/data.php',
    dataType: 'json',
    success: function (data) {



    var res = [];
    for (var i in data) {
    var rows = data;


    res.push({
    event_id: rows[0],
    event_name: rows[1],
    date: rows[2],
    venue:rows[3],
    url:rows[4],

    });

    var eventdate = $data.date;
    var splitdate = eventdate.split("-");
    year = splitdate[0],
    month = splitdate[1],
    day = splitdate[2]
    if (month == 01) {
    month = "Jan"
    }
    if (month == 02) {
    month = "Feb"
    }

    if (month == 03) {
    month = "Mar"
    }

    var newDate = year - month - day;
    }
    viewModel.dSource(res);
    }
    });
    }
