Checking if two Dates have the same date info

How can I check if two different date objects have the same date information(having same day, month, year …)? I have tried “==”, “===” and .equals but none seems to work.

Answer

You can use valueOf() or getTime():

a = new Date(1995,11,17);
b = new Date(1995,11,17);

a.getTime() === b.getTime() // prints true
