How to extract values from an html date input with JavaScript?

Estimated read time 2 min read

To extract values from an HTML date input with JavaScript, you can use the value property of the input element to get the date in the format “yyyy-mm-dd”. Here is an example:

HTML code:

<input type="date" id="myDate">

JavaScript code:

const dateInput = document.getElementById("myDate");
const dateValue = dateInput.value;

console.log(dateValue); // Outputs the date in the format "yyyy-mm-dd"

In this example, we first get a reference to the date input element using the getElementById() method and store it in a variable called dateInput. We then use the value property of the dateInput element to get the date value in the format “yyyy-mm-dd”. This is the default format used by most browsers for date inputs.

Finally, we store the date value in a variable called dateValue and log it to the console. The result is the date in the format “yyyy-mm-dd”, which can be used in further processing or converted to a different format using other JavaScript methods or external libraries.

Note that the date value returned by the value property is a string, so you may need to convert it to a JavaScript Date object or a different format depending on your needs.
