I want to know how to use the Date() function in jQuery to get the current date in a
Date() is not part of
See the documentation on Date object.
You can do it like that:
var d = new Date(); var month = d.getMonth()+1; var day = d.getDate(); var output = d.getFullYear() + '/' + (month<10 ? '0' : '') + month + '/' + (day<10 ? '0' : '') + day;
See this jsfiddle for a proof.
The code may look like a complex one, because it must deal with months & days being represented by numbers less than
10 (meaning the strings will have one char instead of two). See this jsfiddle for comparison.
