Format date to hh:mm (remove seconds)

Example usage:

var grIncAlertTask = new GlideRecord('incident_alert_task');

if (grIncAlertTask.get('e84465641b026010f0dc85e4464bxxxx')) {

var util = new mimDateUtil(grIncAlertTask.incident_alert.source_incident);

util.setTimeFormat('hh:mm');

gs.print(util.formatDateField('sys_created_on'));

}


Script include:

var mimDateUtil = Class.create(); mimDateUtil.prototype = { initialize: function(gr, sDateFormat, sTimeFormat) { this.gr = gr; if (!sDateFormat) this.setDateFormat(); if (!sTimeFormat) this.setTimeFormat(); }, setDateFormat: function(sDateFormat) { this.sDateFormat = sDateFormat || 'dd-MM-yyyy'; }, setTimeFormat: function(sTimeFormat) { this.sTimeFormat = sTimeFormat || 'hh:mm:ss'; }, formatDateField: function(sField) { var sReturn = ""; if (!sField || sField == '') return sReturn; var oField = this.gr[sField]; var sFieldType = oField.getED().getInternalType(); if (sFieldType.indexOf('glide_date') == -1) { // gs.log('Not a date field', this.type); return sReturn; } /* From the DateTime field * - Get GlideDate portion and format it * - Get GlideTime portion and format it */ var gdtCreatedOn = new GlideDateTime(oField), sDatePortion = gdtCreatedOn.getDate().getByFormat(this.sDateFormat), sTimePortion = gdtCreatedOn.getTime().getByFormat(this.sTimeFormat); // Build the output string sReturn = sDatePortion + " " + sTimePortion; return sReturn; /* Ideally wanted to use this snippet * var gdtCreatedOn = new GlideDateTime(fCreatedOn); * gdtCreatedOn.setDisplayValue(fCreatedOn.getDisplayValue(),"dd-MM-yyyy hh:mm"); * gs.print("gdtCreatedOn: " + gdtCreatedOn.getDisplayValue()); * * But no. It's a complete and utter failure. Instead of stripping out the seconds * it's turned into 00. What in the actual f.... */ }, type: 'mimDateUtil' };
