How to format date value in JavaScript?


Following is the code to format date value in JavaScript −

function changeDateFormat(dateValues, addToFront = "") {
   return typeof dateValues == "object" ? addToFront + dateValues.toLocaleDateString() : "";
var currentDate = new Date();
console.log("The current date values=" + currentDate);
console.log("After formatting date values=" +

To run the above program, you need to use the following command −

node fileName.js.
