By Sam Deering

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

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

    Crap, who’ll check its a valid date?
    This will take 99-99-2014 as well

    not working for me :( I get the validation error message but typing in a correctly formatted date doesn’t fix it
