JavaScript Differences Between Two Dates : Hi, welcome to the practice house. In this tutorial, we will learn about how to get the difference between two dates in JavaScript.

Almost all the time, we use date input field to select the date. Sometimes we need to find the difference between two dates. If you are stuck and don’t know how to do it. Don’t worry I got you covered.


We will create two date fields to select the date and one button to click and see what’s the Difference and another text field to show the difference.

<label for="fromDate">From Date :</label>
<input type="date" id="fromDate" name="fromDate">
<label for="toDate">To Date :</label>
<input type="date" id="toDate" name="toDate">
<button id="show">Show me the Different </button>
<label for="dateDiff">Date Different</label>
<input type="text" id="dateDiff" name="dateDiff">

JavaScript Part

Here is our javaScript code. It will work when we click our button. notice that for our button we have id is show. So we are using the .click function with our ID.

$("#show").click( function(){
let fromDate = $('input[name="fromDate"]').val();
let toDate = $('input[name="toDate"]').val();
// Convert to Date
const date1 = new Date(fromDate);
const date2 = new Date(toDate);
let diff = 0;
if (date1 && date2) {
// ms per day = 1000 * 60 * 60 * 24 = 86400000
diff = Math.floor((date2.getTime() - date1.getTime()) / 86400000);
diff = diff + " days";

Note that we are finding our Milliseconds per day using (1000 * 606024)
