Extract date

I'm trying to use the code below to extract the date with out the time.
The result I get is 1st of April  with a time stamp still.

<script type="text/javascript">
 <!--
var d = new Date();
var curr_date = d.getDate();
var curr_month = d.getMonth();
curr_month++;
var curr_year = d.getFullYear();
document.getElementsByName('SubscriberDate')[0].value = ("0" +
curr_month).slice(-2) + "/" + curr_year;//-->
</script>

Open in new window

Good afternoon.

This code displays 04/2012 in IE, Chrome and FF.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        var d = new Date();
        var m = d.getMonth() + 1;
        var y = d.getFullYear();
        if (m < 10) {
            document.write('0');
        }
        document.write(m + '/' + y);
    </script>

I ran your code and got an error at the .slice.  All I saw on my screen was '04'.

        }
        document.write(dt + '/' + y);

Full date with zeros ahead of month and day numbers when they are less than 10.

Try this jsfiddle:

var date = new Date();

$("#SubscriberDate").text(date.toString("MM/YYYY"));
