Read date value from Bootstrap Date/Time picker in a simpler format

I am using Eonasdan's Bootstrap Date/time picker:

I would like to be able to read the selected picked date in a format of my choosing which in this case is DD/MM/YYYY. However it seems to output with the day of week, month name, day, year, time and GMT offset.

I have created an example of the script here:

When you select a date I output the ID of the date text field and the date string. I am able to set the date format for how the date appears in the date text field but not when I read it.

I found the solution in the end and I needed to call the Format function from momentjs as follows:'DD/MM/YYYY')
