I am new to knockout js:

I am trying to display a Date in a Bootstrap table using knockout js data binding

The Json data coming across from the server includes a CreatedDate

[{"Id":"000eb141-cb55-4582-a4f9-0f428e77ae1f","CreatedDate":"\/Date(1391628264240)\/","Reference":"8888","Notes":"bddddd","TotalAmount":96.00,"Status":"Draft","CostCentre":"Science","NextStatus":"Sent For Approval","NextActionText":"Send For Approval","CanDelete":true,"CanAuthorise":false,"CanExecuteNextAction":true

When I bind the date in my bootstrap table
 <td data-bind="text: CreatedDate"></td>

I get:  /Date(1391628264240)/  displayed in the CreatedDate column.

What do I have to do to get the date to display in dd/MM/yyyy format?

Format the date on the server side :
I know you do a query from the database and just apply json_encode to the full result but you need to loop over each resulted row and do something similar to :

	$CreatedDate = '/Date(1391628264240)/';
	preg_match("/[0-9]+/", $CreatedDate, $matches);
	$CreatedDate = date("d-m-Y", $matches[0]/1000);

Test page if you're able to loop over data on the client side : http://jsfiddle.net/mX28D/

var arr = [
  {
    "CreatedDate": "\/Date(1391628264240)\/",
    "Reference": "8888",
    "Notes": "bddddd",
    "TotalAmount": 96.00,
    "Status": "Draft",
    "CostCentre": "Science",
    "NextStatus": "Sent For Approval",
    "NextActionText": "Send For Approval",
    "CanDelete": true,
    "CanAuthorise": false,
    "CanExecuteNextAction": true
  }
];

var ViewModel = function(first, last) {
    this.CreatedDate = ko.observable("06/02/2014");
};

var m = new ViewModel();
ko.applyBindings(m);

var date = arr[0].CreatedDate;
date = date.replace(/\D/g,""); // remove parentheses
date = date * 1; // It's now a number
date = new Date(date);
var d2 = function(n) { return n>9?n:"0"+n; };
date = d2(date.getDate()) + "/" + d2(date.getMonth()+1) + "/" + date.getFullYear();
m.CreatedDate(date); // 05/02/2014
