Well, you have two options:

1. Wrap the <apex:outputField value="{!Position.CreatedDate}"/>

2. Or you could convert the date/datetime field value into a string within the Apex/Controller. 

 

I recommend option #1.

Can you provide the code snippet that shows how you are displaying the date field? Is the date field bound to a field in the salesforce.com schema?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply

 

Here is the code of my page (it's quite simple and stupid for the moment !) 

 

<p><i><b>{!Position.Location__c}</b> - {!Position.CreatedDate}</i><br/>

 

I tried several things in order to format my date, but nothing worked 

 

Thanks again for your help.

Thanks I tried and it's worked, I will see the tutorial of Apex in order to better use the apex tag.
