Function rbf_formatDate() does not recognize format "2

Posted by Meryk on 18-Feb-2015 08:22


I am using the function rbf_formatDate to format a given date using a format I am getting from the available ones in the setting page of user. (Settings>My Settings> Field Date format), i.e these :

The format of "2015-Feb-18 14:12" is "yyyy-MMM-dd hh:mm".

This format as we can see is available in Rollbase, but when we do this :

var myDate = new Date();

var formattedDate = rbf_formatDtae(myDate, "yyyy-MMM-dd") ; 

formattedDate is : "2015-0505-18". (We are truncating the time too).

Any ideas why this format is not recognized by rbf_formatDate ?

Thank you

rbf_formatDate only supports a handful of formats and unfortunately this is not one of them. We have a long pending issue on this function which we plan to get to may be in the next release.
