I am working on a requirement where the metadata type of the field is datetime and is used in several places. However, in one of the vf pages i need to show only the "date" which needs to be extracted from datetime.
Here's what i tried :
1.) Assign the value from datetime field to a string variable to get the substring.(NOT possible to assign datetime to string)
2.)Assign the value from datetime to date. In this case i get a totally different date value i.e with a difference of almost a month.
Below is the snippet for the same.
datetime finishDatetime;// datetime date finishDate; // date only finishDatetime= sr.CKSW_BASE__Finish__c; finishDate=finishDatetime.date(); //This gives me the value of Feb 28th when converted to date along with a string of 0's and GMT where as the original value in the backend is around March 15th.
Any suggestions would be greatly helpful.
Thanks and Regards,
