How do I get current date in JavaScript?

Practice As Follows

Use new Date() to generate a new Date object containing the current date and time.

var today = new Date();
var dd = today.getDate();
var mm = today.getMonth()+1; //January is 0!
var yyyy = today.getFullYear();

if(dd<10) {
    dd = '0'+dd
} 

if(mm<10) {
    mm = '0'+mm
} 

today = mm + '/' + dd + '/' + yyyy;
document.write(today);

This will give you today's date in the format of mm/dd/yyyy.

Simply change today = mm +'/'+ dd +'/'+ yyyy; to whatever format you wish.
