Datatables date format problem

I'm using datatables with my project and i'm trying to display several dates.

It works fine in Chrome but not in firefox. In firefox the dates are shown as Nan

Any ideas

replace :
							var d = new Date (data);
						
							var curr_date = d.getDate();
							var curr_month = d.getMonth() + 1;
							var curr_year = d.getFullYear();

							var newdate= (curr_date + "/" + curr_month + "/" + curr_year);
										
							if( (data)){
								return newdate;
							}
							else
							{
							return "";	
							}

Open in new window

by :
							if(data) {
								var d = data.split(/-|\s/);
							
								var curr_date = d[2];
								var curr_month = d[1];
								var curr_year = d[0];

								return curr_date + "/" + curr_month + "/" + curr_year;
							}
							else
							{
								return "";	
							}

Just so you know, in IE 11 it also displays NaN for the dates. NaN stands for "Not a Number".

I don't think this problem is with the date handling code because this:

<html>
<head>
<script>
function getValue()
  {
var d = new Date();
var curr_date = d.getDate();
var curr_month = d.getMonth() + 1;
var curr_year = d.getFullYear();
var newdate= (curr_date + "/" + curr_month + "/" + curr_year);
alert(newdate);
}
</script>
</head>
<body>

<h1 id="myHeader" onclick="getValue()">Click me!</h1>

</body>
</html>

Open in new window


This works just fine in FF and IE 11.

Hope this helps.
