    So what is your question? Are you asking how to get the month in Javascript?

    var month = new Date().getMonth(); // months in Javascript are 0-11, so March is month 2 and September month 8.

    i have tried using getdate() but i can only get it to work in mm/dd/yyyy fromat, where as im usning dd/mm/yyyy format. reading over my post and its not as clear as i thought, i now know i need to use getdate() but as i said, i use dd/mm/yyyy so it dose not work

    getDate() returns the date (i.e 20 today), not the month. And note that Javascript is case-sensitive - getdate() will return an error.

    You can format the date any way you like:-

    Code:
    var now = new Date();
    var yr = now.getFullYear();
    var mth = now.getMonth();
    var dt = now.getDate();
    
    alert (dt + "/" + (mth+1) + "/" + yr);   // 20/1/2012

    assuming that you want to use the date from the firstdate text box, you can do something like this:

    Code:
    function checkMonth() {
    mon=document.getElementById("firstDate").value.split("/")[1]
    if(mon>5 && mon<12){rate="winter"} else {rate="summer"}
    return rate;
    }

    Strange seasons you have in NL!

    if (mon>=3 && mon<=9){rate="summer"} else {rate="winter"} // summer is March - September inclusive

    Oh, my mistake. I thought you resided in the Netherlands.
