Option 1: Using Date.parse()
Option 2: Using Regular Expressions
Regular expressions can be used to validate date strings based on specific formats. This approach allows for more precise control over the accepted date format, but requires writing regular expressions for each desired format.
Example for validating YYYY-MM-DD format:
Option 3: Using the Date Object Constructor
Another way to validate date strings is to use the Date object constructor. When given a date string, the constructor will create a new Date object. You can then compare the input string with the formatted date string returned by the Date object to determine if the input is valid.
Option 4: Using Moment.js Library
Note: Moment.js is no longer actively maintained and the developers recommend using alternatives like Luxon or Day.js for new projects.
