enter image description hereenter image description hereCurrently the below code gives me a date display of: 2019-01-31 00:00:00. I would like to see it displayed as: 31 January 2019 instead...

<table width="35%" align="left" id="myHTMLTable" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> 
  <tr align="Middle"> 
        <b><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Due Date</span></b></td> 
  <tr align="middle">
     <td align="Middle">
        <span style="color: #548235; font-size: 25pt;">2019-01-31 00:00:00</span></td>

getMyListData() ;
function getMyListData()
    var method = "GetListItems";                 
    var webURL =  $().SPServices.SPGetCurrentSite() ;                     
    var list = "Project Statement";                      

    var fieldsToRead = "<ViewFields>"+"<FieldRef Name='Name' /><Value IncludeTimeValue='FALSE' Type='DateTime'>2008-12-03T12:00:00Z</Value>" + "</ViewFields>";

    var query = "<Query><OrderBy><FieldRef Name='Date_x0020_Due' /></OrderBy></Query>"; 

         operation: method,
         async: false, 
         webURL: webURL,
         listName: list,
         CAMLViewFields: "<ViewFields Properties='True' />",
         CAMLQuery: query,                                                                                     
         completefunc: function (xData, Status)
                 var vDueDate = $(this).attr("ows_Date_x0020_Due");

                 $("#myHTMLTable").append("<tr align='middle'>" +
                    "<td align='Middle'>"+"<span style='font-size:25.0pt;color:#548235'>"+vDueDate+"</span>"+"</td>" + 

Could not get code in correctly, so hope you can understand it.


They are various ways to format the dates using plugins or custom functions. I will answer it using plain javascript. Use below code in your completefunc:

var monthsArray = ['January', 'February', 'March', 'April', 'May', 'June', 'July', 'August', 'September', 'October', 'November', 'December'];

    var owsDueDate = $(this).attr("ows_Date_x0020_Due").replace(' ' , 'T') + "Z";
    var date = new Date(owsDueDate);
    var dd = date.getDate();
    var m = date.getMonth();
    var y = date.getFullYear();
    var vDueDate =  dd + " " + monthsArray[m] + " " + y;

    $("#myHTMLTable").append("<tr align='middle'><td align='middle'><span style='font-size:25pt;color:#548235'>"+vDueDate+"</span></td></tr>");
  • I replaced what I had with what you provided, but now it does not show a date at all. Not sure how to add code to a comment. I'm not a very good programmer. – drcoz Nov 19 '18 at 18:23
  • On the line var vDueDate is there suppose to be two "=="? When I remove one of them I get "NaN undefined NaN". With the two equal signs I don't get anything. – drcoz Nov 19 '18 at 18:43
  • "==" was by mistake. It should be single "=". try logging each variable in console and see the what is the value of variable. For example. console.log(owsDueDate);. It will give you an idea where the code is wrong. – Ganesh Sanap Nov 19 '18 at 19:54
  • I don't have full code right now. Will post it tomorrow. – Ganesh Sanap Nov 19 '18 at 19:55
