How to format date in Apex VisualForce

Posted on 21-02-2013 09:47 by graham
To format a date on a VisualForce page, use the apex:outputText tag.
<apex:outputText value="{0,date,MM/dd/yyyy}" title="Date Of Birth" >
<apex:param value="{!dateOfBirth}" />

As you can see, the value attribute in the outputText tag defines to format of the date, and the actual value of the field is passed in the apex:param tag.
