jquery datetime picker

Answer Source

After getting suggestion from this question this is how you can do that. First setting the date constructor for today and the test date then set their time portion equal to zero and compare.

There are also other cool plugins to achieve the same more easily and more accurately like dateJs , momentJs

Using momentJs

var inputDate = new Date("2017-02-07 10:05");

var isToday = inputDate.isSame(new Date(), "day");

Using dateJs

var isToday = Date.equals(, new Date("2017-02-07 10:05").clearTime());

Using native JavaScript date

var inputDate = new Date("2017-02-07 10:05");

var todaysDate = new Date();

var isToday = (inputDate.setHours(0, 0, 0, 0) == todaysDate.setHours(0, 0, 0, 0));
