When you create an a Date()
'Tue Apr 1 12:58:25 EDT 2008'
Now suppose you want to display this date in mm/dd/yyyy
format. The following code snippet provides a quick way to do this:
return value.getMonth()+1 + "/" + value.getDate() + "/" + value.getYear();
When this function is called with a parameter value of Tue Apr 1 12:58:25 EDT 2008
, it will return the date as 4/1/2008
Note: The getMonth() function of Date() object starts from 0 to 11, so you needs to increment it by 1 to get the exact month value.
