bootstrap datepicker setDate format dd/mm/yyyy

I have to set the date in my datepicker in dd/mm/yyyy format. Whet I'm trying to do, with Javascript is this:

  var year = 2014;
  var month = 5;
  var day = 10;

  var realDate = new Date(year, month - 1, day); // months are 0-based!

  $('#MainContent_txtDataConsegna').datepicker({ dateFormat: 'dd/mm/yyyy' }); // format to show
  $('#MainContent_txtDataConsegna').datepicker('setDate', realDate);

the problem is that the value inside my datepicker is always in format mm/dd/yyyy. Where is the problem??

Here the definition datepicker and datepicker options:

   <div class="input-group date">
       <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtDataOrdine" class="form-control" onBlur="CalcolaTotaliTestata('txtDataOrdine')"></asp:TextBox>
       <span class="input-group-addon"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-calendar"></i>/span>

<script type="text/javascript">
       todayBtn: "linked",
       language: "it",
       autoclose: true,
       todayHighlight: true,
       dateFormat: 'dd/mm/yyyy' 



dateFormat: 'dd/mm/yyyy'


format: 'dd/mm/yyyy'

Looks like you just misread some documentation!

a bit change in format

format : "DD/MM/YYYY"

Changing to format: 'dd/mm/yyyy' didn't work for me, and changing that to dateFormat: 'dd/mm/yyyy' added year multiple times, The finest one for me was,

dateFormat: 'dd/mm/yy'

There is confusing when you are using data picker, for bootstrap datepicker you have to use following code:-

$( ".datepicker" ).datepicker({
   format: 'yyyy-mm-dd'

and for jquery datepicker following code must be used:-

$( ".datepicker" ).datepicker({
       dateFormat: 'dd-mm-yy'

So you must be aware which date picker you are using, that is ultimately solve your issue, Hope this hepls you.

For Me i got same issue i resolved like this changed format:'dd/mm/yy' to dateFormat: 'dd/mm/yy'

for me it is daterangepicker worked by this :

                   locale: {
                            format: 'DD/MM/YYYY'

You can use this code for bootstrap datepicker:

HTML Code:

<p>Date: <input type="text" id="datepicker" class="datepicker"></p>


$( ".datepicker" ).datepicker({
   format: 'yyyy-mm-dd'

format : "DD/MM/YYYY" should resolve your issue. If you need more help regarding available formats, please visit which is used by this control internally.

I was facing an issue where this "format" thing was working fine on local machine but when I deployed the application on server, the date was not getting populated and the control was empty. when I commented the format code, it started working but then I didn't have the format that I needed. I fixed that issue using globalization entries in web.config.

    uiCulture="en-GB" />    

This helped in ensuring that both local & server environments have same culture.

I have some problems with jquery mobile 1.4.5. For example it seems accepting format change only passing from "option". And there are some refresh problem with the calendar using "option". For all that have the same problems I can suggest this code:

$( "#mydatepicker" ).datepicker( "option", "dateFormat", "dd/mm/yy" );
$( "#mydatepicker" ).datepicker( "setDate", new Date());    

"As with bootstrap’s own plugins, datepicker provides a data-api that can be used to instantiate datepickers without the need for custom javascript..."

Boostrap DatePicker Documentation

Maybe you want to set format without DatePicker instance, for that, you have to add the property data-date-format="DateFormat" to main Div tag, for example:

<div class="input-group date" data-provide="datepicker" data-date-format="yyyy-mm-dd">
    <div class="input-group-addon">
        <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-th"></span>

    <input type="text" name="YourName" id="YourId" class="YourClass">

Try this

 format: 'DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm A'

As we all know JS is case-sensitive. So this will display

10/05/2016 12:00 AM

In your case is

format: 'DD/MM/YYYY'

Display : 10/05/2016

My bootstrap datetimepicker is based on eonasdan bootstrap-datetimepicker
