ShowDate Function

Demetrius Francis Nov 18, 2004
This script is a great example that shows the date in different formats from one function. Seeing the examples makes this script easy to modify and can be used to help understand the underlying code.


Showdate ( [date object|string], [day string], [month string], [date string], [year string], [delimeter string] )

Date:- Javascript date object in the form new Date(), new Date(1982,06,30).

Day:- Day string in the form "dddd" or "ddd".

Month:- Month string in the form "mmmm", "mmm", "mm".

Date:- Date string in the form "dddd", "ddd", "dd", "d".

Year:- Year string in the form "yyyy", "yy".

Example Results

Showdate(new Date(), 'dd', 'mm', 'dd', 'yyyy', '.')
Showdate(new Date(2001,11,25), 'dddd', 'mmm', 'dd', 'yy', ' ')
