Datetime Display - Date Only Or Date And Time

Question

Hello All!!

 

I have a date field in which times are captured and stored some of the time.  I am trying to figure out how to display the date in an HTML block in a dynamic way that displays time if present and not if empty.

 

Please consider:

Date1:  01/06/2015

Date2:  01/07/2015 17:45:00

 

Desired display:

Date1: Jan 6th, 2015

Date2: Jan 7th, 2015 5:45PM

 

Actual display

Date1: Jan 6th, 2015 12:00AM

Date2: Jan 7th, 2015 5:45PM

 

When time is not captured it is not relevant and thus shouldn't be displayed.

 

I have a workaround that involves a calculated field, but it's pretty clunky.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Hi Chad,

 

If I understand you correctly, you can select 'Forma type: None' in 'Formatting Settings' of 'Field Options' section.

 

Let me know if it is not what you want.

Iren;

Thanks that is closer, but without any formatting the dates are displayed as:

 

Date1:  01/06/2015

Date2:  01/07/2015 17:45:00

 

Desired display:

Date1: Jan 6th, 2015

Date2: Jan 7th, 2015 5:45PM

 

It may seem like a minor difference, but my users will be using this app for hours at a time (some for the majority of a work day), and the former display is harder to read.

 

FEI (For everyone's information) that calculated field.

Replace([@cbField],' 12:00AM','')
