    Well, I've made a "birthdayscript" that return actual age to a dynamic text. This almost works but ones in a while it returns the else condition when if should been returned. Take a look at it if you will. Mathematicly it should work after testing it with a truthtable.

    myDate = new Date();
    oldmonth = new Date(10);
    oldday = new Date(7);
    oldyear = new Date(1978);
    day = new Date(myDate.getDate());
    month = new Date(myDate.getMonth());
    year = new Date(myDate.getFullYear());
    if ((oldday<=day) or (oldmonth<month)) {
    age = year-oldyear;
    } else {
    age = (year-oldyear-1);
    }
    if ((oldday<>day) and (oldmonth<>month)) {
    grattis = "";
    } else {
    grattis = "Gratulere med dagen";
    }

    The last condition returns a message every birthday (Happy birthday). The first one the actually age, wicth switch on every day of birth.

    Thank you for any kind of tip.

    Rolf.

    in theory aour code shoudl work. but i think it's better programmed this way:

    grattis = "";
    if ((oldday == day) && (oldmonth == month))
    {
    grattis = "Gratulere med dagen";
    }

    ... the message will only be displayed when the birthday is true - there's no need to check if the birthday isn't on that day.

    Hope this works for you
