To add days to a date using Moment.js with the format of "mm/dd/yyyy", you can follow these steps:

  1. Install Moment.js into your project if you haven't already. You can do this by running the following command in your project's root directory: npm install moment
  2. Import the Moment.js library into your JavaScript file: const moment = require('moment');
  3. Create a Moment.js object with your desired date: const date = moment('12/31/2021', 'MM/DD/YYYY');
  4. Use the add method to add the desired number of days to the date object: const newDate = date.add(7, 'days');
  5. Retrieve the date in the desired format using the format method: const formattedDate = newDate.format('MM/DD/YYYY');
  6. You can now use the formattedDate variable as needed, which will store the updated date.

Here's a complete example:

const moment = require('moment');

const date = moment('12/31/2021', 'MM/DD/YYYY');
const newDate = date.add(7, 'days');
const formattedDate = newDate.format('MM/DD/YYYY');

console.log(formattedDate); // Output: 01/07/2022

In this example, we start with the date '12/31/2021' and add 7 days to it, resulting in the updated date '01/07/2022'.
