Datediff calculation

Problem: Is there a way to take a system variable like today’s date and add two years and have it printed to screen?

Hi Robert,

It’s not possible with variables but you can use JavaScript to do that:

// current date time
var d = new Date();
// add two years
d.setFullYear(d.getFullYear() + 2);
// show it on an object in the slide

Amazing thank you!!! Is there a way to programmatically (sp?) concatenate the string "Expiry Date: " before printing the calculated date?

You can change the last statement in the script as follows:

prez.object('object_name').text('Expiry Date: ' + d.toLocaleDateString());

Hey @ToanLS ,

is it possible that only the year and not the whole date is displayed? :slight_smile:


Hi @sariwest,

You can use d.getFullYear() (d is a Date object as in the sample code above)
