Javascript format date / time

The Solution to Javascript format date / time is


Yes, you can use the native javascript Date() object and its methods.

For instance you can create a function like:

function formatDate(date) {
  var hours = date.getHours();
  var minutes = date.getMinutes();
  var ampm = hours >= 12 ? 'pm' : 'am';
  hours = hours % 12;
  hours = hours ? hours : 12; // the hour '0' should be '12'
  minutes = minutes < 10 ? '0'+minutes : minutes;
  var strTime = hours + ':' + minutes + ' ' + ampm;
  return (date.getMonth()+1) + "/" + date.getDate() + "/" + date.getFullYear() + "  " + strTime;
}

var d = new Date();
var e = formatDate(d);

alert(e);

And display also the am / pm and the correct time.

Remember to use getFullYear() method and not getYear() because it has been deprecated.
