THIS VERSION HAS BEEN REPLACED BY 'Days between dates using new blocks'

This project was inspired by a support request on my Facebook App Inventor Projects page.
It calculates the fractional number of days between two dates using two DatePickers and a Clock component.

returns a fractional day from two date inputs formatted as MM/DD/YYYY

Explanation:

Use the number of milliseconds between dates to calculate the number of days between the dates by using dimensional analysis to convert ms to days (ignores leap seconds):

ms x 1 sec    x 1 hr        1 day 
     -----      ----     x  -----
     1000 ms    3600 sec    24 hr 

So: ms/86400000 = fractional days

aia project is attached.

It could be easily rewritten for the current AI version. Will you be the one to do it?
