How to get file creation date on browser using javascript or jquery

I need to find out the file creation date and file last modified date while uploading the xls file, I have to do some calculation on this 2 dates.

By using below code I can easily get file last modified date.

$('#userfile').bind('change', function() {
  //this.files[0].size gets the size of your file.
  alert((this.files[0].lastModifiedDate));
  alert((this.files[0].DateCreated));
  $file_full_path =this.files[0].mozFullPath;
  alert(alert);
});

I am not able to find out the the file creation date. can anybody please help me.

I have also tried it via php but it is not possible via php because php doesn't send this information to server.

Please tell me is there any way to get this information. Thanks.

You can not get the creation date. Only the last modified date is available in file properties.

For PHP there is a thread here that provides answer: PHP: how can I get file creation date?
