    Validate Dates Link to this post

    Ok got an issue, i'm trying to work out how to validate a form/datobject, i have a start date for a task and an end date for the task, what i want to do is on the edit task form if the FinDate field is populated that it checks that the value is not less than the StartDate.

    I've tried,

    if(isset($_POST['FinDate'])) {
              if($_POST['FinDate'] < $_POST['StartDate']) {
       $form->addErrorMessage('FinDate', 'End Date cannot be fore start date', 'bad');
       return $this->redirectBack();

    but this just keeps firing when no date is added and if a date is added it doesn't validate.

    Any help or pointers much appreciated.
