php - Check if a date has been selected. Bootstrap input type date
I have some code where I have a simple Bootstrap datepicker
I can successfully get the value of the datepicker when a date has been selected. I use
var date=$('#date').val() which works well when a date has been selected. But when a date hasn't been selected, it just returns a blank. I need to check for a situation where a date hasn't been selected and do something ... I have tried
if(date=null) none of these are efficient. The function never jumps to the else. The if statement always results to true. Is there something I am doing wrong or is my approach totally out of question?
