Date format not supported? MM/DD/YY hh:mm


As an user, I'm having trouble getting the desired format of MM/DD/YY hh:mm. The format MM/DD/YY works, but not with the time. I need to surround the JS expression in mustache brackets {{...}} for it to evaluate properly in widget property fields.


To display the format MM/DD/YY hh:mm, you need to surround the JS expression in mustache brackets. This ensures that JS evaluates properly in the widget property fields. The format MM/DD/YY is already supported by most platforms, but the time part needs to be added separately.

Here's an example of how to display the date and time in the specified format:

{{new Date().toLocaleDateString('en-US')}} {{new Date().toLocaleTimeString('en-US')}}

This code will display the date in MM/DD/YY format and time in hh:mm format. You can customize the format by modifying the arguments passed to toLocaleDateString() and toLocaleTimeString().
