I’m trying to read and format a date from XML
The XML date is :
<pubDate>Thu, 28 Aug 2008 09:19:45 -0500</pubDate>
I have the following code:
var newsDate:Date = new Date (); newsDate = xml.item.pubDate as Date; trace(newsDate);
Which returns null.
I need to get this input into a form that Date can recogize so that the date can be formatted as MM/DD/YY.
This is in Flash, not Flex, so mx.formatters.DateFormatter is not an option.
