Current date in URL?

is there a way to include the current date in a URL in a menu? I can't seem to get it to work correctly

Here is my code:

aI("text=My Appointments;url=Calendar.asp?WeekID="Document.Write(now)";");

The date format should be mm/dd/yyyy

Code: Select all

<SCRIPT>
now = new Date();
today = (now.getMonth()+1) + "/" + now.getDate() + "/" + now.getFullYear();
....
....
aI("text=Item1;url=/somedir/somepage.asp?query1=" + today + ";");
....
</SCRIPT>


Haven't gotten a chance to test this but this is the general direction I would take. The menu item definition is essentially just a string, so you can start and stop it while inside the aI so when you get the query string part, you stop the string, concatinate it with the today-string and then concatinate that with the rest of the menu stuff and close the aI.

Hot dang! I think that brings my total of working scripts to like 2, maybe 3! Yahoo! :lol: Glad it worked! As I said, I didnt test it...so it makes it more interesting to see what you say afterwards! Best of luck with the Milonic DHTML Menu!!
