View Full Version : Formatting string into date from a specific format

9 Nov 2012, 1:59 AM
HI all,

I have a string 20121109 (Ymd format or 2012 nov 09). I want to convert this string into a date by supplying the format. Please let me know how can i convert this string into date. I know I can split the string and then I can convert it into date but I dont want to go that way.

I have tried this but it did not worked:
var date = Date.parseDate('20121109', 'Ymd');

For all date formatting etc I use moment.js.
