The Best Answer is


This is probably the easiest way:

new Date(<your-date-object>.toDateString());

Example: To get the Current Date without time component:

new Date(new Date().toDateString());

gives: Thu Jul 11 2019 00:00:00 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time)

Note this works universally, because toDateString() produces date string with your browser's localization (without the time component), and the new Date() uses the same localization to parse that date string.

Parse that string into a Date object:

var myDate = new Date('10/11/1955 10:40:50 AM');

Then use the usual methods to get the date's day of month (getDate) / month (getMonth) / year (getFullYear).

var noTime = new Date(myDate.getFullYear(), myDate.getMonth(), myDate.getDate());
