Well you wish to check their expiration date using php or as an application designer and developer you wish to ensure in your app such as e-commerce app that products expiration day is still valid. C’mon here’s a proven function for you

The process code to check product expiration duration

just do as we did below, remember we are still using function as predefined in our previous post the Best PHP checkdate() alternative: How to do date validation in php (special function).

and we did a little tweak to suit our need in the current topic.

function get_expiration_date($date){
	$dateparameters = array();
	$date = preg_replace("/[^0-9\']/", ",", $date);	
	$date = explode(',', $date);
	$exp = '';
	if(count($date) == 3){
    for ($i = 0; $i < 3; ++$i) {
        $dateparameters []= $date[$i];
	$year = $dateparameters[0];
	$month = $dateparameters[1];
	$actualmonth = $dateparameters[1];
	$actualday = $dateparameters[2];
	$actualdate = $year.'-'.$month.'-'.$actualday;
	$day = cal_days_in_month(CAL_GREGORIAN, $month, $year);

	$day = range(1, $day); // day range
	$month = range(1, 12); // month range
	if(in_array($actualday, $day) && in_array($actualmonth, $month)){ //Check if actual month and day is in range of days that should be in the provided month of the given year
		$origin = date_create($actualdate); // create the date of birth in proper date parameters
		$target = date_create(date('Y-m-d')); // creates the current day from the user is calculating from
		$exp = date_diff($target, $origin);
		$exp = intval($exp->format('%R%a'))+1;
return $exp;

There is a +1 in the above function since we considered that a product be it beverage or drug does not actually expire on or before the expiration date but immediately after the day specified as the expiration date. No let’s include the functions output in our work. it should look like below php logic code.

the final code

$exp_date = '2022/9/21';

if(get_expiration_date($exp_date) > 0){
	echo '>>>>>> The product expiration date is valid and have not expired it is still good till <b>'.get_expiration_date($exp_date).'</b> day(s) ahead';
	echo 'xxxxxx The product expiration date is invalid and have expired, it is no longer good since <b>'.str_replace('-','',get_expiration_date($exp_date)).'</b> day(s) ago';
