Date Format changes the value of the Day

Hi,

My oData service provides data in the below format:

<d:WiCd>2014-12-12T00:00:00</d:WiCd>


This date is formatted in my application as below:


// Set the Document Created date
  var oAttrCrdttm = new sap.m.ObjectAttribute({id:"Crdttm",
  visible: true,
  title: "Created",
  text: {path: "WiCd",
    formatter: function(date){
      if(date){
              var oDateFormat = sap.ui.core.format.DateFormat.getDateInstance({pattern: "MM-dd-yyyy"});
              date1 = oDateFormat.format(new Date(date));
              return date1
             }else {
              return null;
          } } },
  active: false });

But the output shows below:

After formatting the date it changes the day by one day, not sure what could be the reason.

Thank you for your time and help

    Issue is resolved:

    As the date in oData Service was <d:WiCd>2014-12-12T00:00:00</d:WiCd> as the time in the date is 00:00:00 due to which, format on DateFormat converts it to 2014-12-11.

    Resolved this by stripped the time part in the date field using below code:

    date = date.split("T");

    So that the date part is only used for formatting:

    This worked in my scenario, can suggest if there is a better solution for the same.

    Thanks all for your Views
