Date Format displaying blank.

Hi Experts,

I searched all threads & couldn't find solution for date formatting issue.

I'm trying to display date with date formatter function in formatter.js file.

My display field is written as below.

<ObjectAttribute text="{StartDate, formatter : '.date'}"/>

while my formatter.js is written as follows."sap.ui.core.format.DateFormat");


  ], function () {

"use strict";

return {

currencyValue : function (sValue) {......... },

//Date function to display date in mm/dd/yyyy format

date: function(value){ //Date(1451635200000)/

var value1 = value.substring(7,20);

var oDateFormat = sap.ui.core.format.DateFormat.getDateInstance(

{value1: "dd/MM/yyyy"}); //Returns a DateFormat instance for date and time

value = oDateFormat;

return value;



But it is displaying as blank. Thanks in advance.

Hi Sameer,

You can try format options in the View code. Below is an example-

<ObjectAttribute text="{ path: 'StartDate', type: 'sap.ui.model.type.Date', formatOptions: { style : 'long' }}"/>
