I made this one using the Date Picker but I wanted the user to enter the date

just adjust your blocks to your needs
where exactly is the problem?

I do not know how to do this. The example I gave was if he types in the textbox the date of birth 05/17/1966 I want to get that date value and subtract from the current date to know the age.

Read again the guide mentioned above and try the Duration methods


may be something like this?

I took the example of the post ow to get the number of years, months and days between two dates?
I changed the two parameters start and end with the value entered by the user and the system value.

Putting only the date without formatting example: 11/05/1966 gives this error.


Could you let me know what’s wrong?

If you r using system time, then don’t use make instant from block. Directly use get millis. See I have tried like this and got result as I expect…
