SAPUI5 Date formatting issue

Mar 02 at 01:12 PM

dateFormat: sap.ui.core.format.DateFormat.getDateTimeInstance({
		pattern: "yyyyMMdd"

And later on in the code I format my date like:

// this.datePeriod2 : Mon 31 December 2018 23:59:59 GMT+0100

And in the app running on the SAP Gateway it returns:


On my WebIDE it returns:


My question is:

Can someone explain me why in my WebIDE, I do get the right date "20181231" and in the SAP Gateway I get "20191231"? And how do I fix it?

Both UI5 versions are the same: 1.44.8.

I'm really clueless here. Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Hi Thijs,

Your issue might be related to the way the gateway format the date.

This is how I format my date for example:

oDateFormat = sap.ui.core.format.DateFormat.getDateInstance({pattern : "yyyy-MM-dd", "UTC": true});

SAP Note 2511532 may help.
