Sam Deering

jquery validation for dob to specific format ie dd-mm-yy

    function(value, element) {
        return value.match(/^dd?-dd?-dd$/);
    "Please enter a date in the format dd-mm-yyyy.");
And then on your form add:
        rules : {
            myDate : {
                dateFormat: true
