To get the current date time try this code below :

var date = new Date();
var currentServerDateTime = date.format("dd/MM/yyyy");

Hope it will be helpful.


If you need to know how many milliseconds have elapsed since 1970, then JavaScript is outstanding. If you need formatted dates, then it can be kind of a pain. I think you'll find that lot's of people turn to other libraries, such as moment.js for this sort of thing.
