Date Format in XML View


I am trying to format the date in my XML view with the following code

<Table:Column width="150px">
  <Label text="Posting Date" />

<Label text="{path:'FinModel>PstngDate',

type: 'sap.ui.model.type.Date',

formatOptions: {pattern: 'yyyy/MM/dd'}

}" />


The data in 'FinModel>PstngDate' is 2014-01-08T00:00:00

I want this to be displayed as 08/01/2014

But the above code gives me the error.

Uncaught TypeError: d.getTime is not a function

Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Hi Firoz,

    thats because this type expects a javascript date but it gets an odata Datetime type.

    I suggest using SAPUI5 SDK - Demo Kit instead. It is just slightly different.


    You can request your data from the OdataModel as json. That should work too:

    SAPUI5 SDK - Demo Kit

    Just set json to true.
