Change date color when the date has been reached

I would like to make a list with products and there expiration date. To make the list more clear I would like to change the font color to RED when the date has been reached.

Is this possible this would be very handy.

Thanks in advance.

As far as I know, you are going to need a User Macro and admin permissions to install it.

Here's one I wrote that does more than what you were asking for which you can tweak. I don't know if/when HTML 5 compatiblity will be an issue for Confluence so this is HTML 5 compatible.

Your list will be a list of macro boxes. Enter your product name/text whatever in the macro box ($body) and edit the macro to set the expiration date for each product.

## Macro Name: expdatehighligher

## Macro Title: Expiration Date Highlighter

## Macro Body Processing: Escaped

## @param endDate:title=Expiration Date|type=date|required=true|desc=mm/dd/yyyy

#set ($endDate = $content.currentDate)

#set ($currentDate = $content.currentDate)

$endDate.setTime($content.currentDate.parse($paramendDate))

#if($currentDate.before($endDate))

<p>$body $paramendDate</p>

#else

<p style="color:white; background-color:red; font-weight:bold">$body $paramendDate</p>

#end
