Some useful regular expressions

Every once in a while I'm asked to do some JavaScript form validation. Here's a handful of regular expressions that I use:

  • SSN: var filter = /^\d{3}-\d{2}-\d{4}$/;
  • TIN: var filter = /^\d{2}-\d{7}$/;
  • Date: var filter = /^(?=\d)(?:(?:(?:(?:(?:0?[13578]|1[02])(\/)31)\1|(?:(?:0?[1,3-9]|1[0-2])(\/)(?:29|30)\2))(?:(?:1[6-9]|[2-9]\d)?\d{2})|(?:0?2(\/)29\3(?:(?:(?:1[6-9]|[2-9]\d)?(?:0[48]|[2468][048]|[13579][26])|(?:(?:16|[2468][048]|[3579][26])00))))|(?:(?:0?[1-9])|(?:1[0-2]))(\/)(?:0?[1-9]|1\d|2[0-8])\4(?:(?:1[6-9]|[2-9]\d)?\d{2})))?$/; // ($|\ (?=\d)))?(((0?[1-9]|1[012])(:[0-5]\d){0,2}(\ [AP]M))|([01]\d|2[0-3])(:[0-5]\d){1,2})?$/;

I'll add to this list as needed...

Happy coding.
