I am trying to format pubDate value in MM/DD/YY format in my Javascript. Can anyone give me pointers ?
document.getElementById("chan").innerHTML ="";

	for (var i=0; i<RSS.items.length; i++)

	{	
 

		var item_title = RSS.items[i].title;

		var item_url = RSS.items[i].link;

		var item_date = RSS.items[i].pubDate;

		

		document.getElementById("chan").innerHTML += "<a href ="+ item_url + " target='_blank'>" + item_title +  "</a> " + item_date + "<br>";

	}

Thank you. I solved this issue ... if anyone is still looking for an answer ... here it is ... I used DateFormat class to parse the pubDate string to a java Date object.



DateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("EEE, dd MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss zzz");

Date publishedDate = df.parse(((Item) getChannelItems()[currentIteration]).getPubDate().toString().trim());
