Help with date formats


#1

i have a datetime field in my database that i need broken up. i want to
display the date and the time in separate places. i tried looking
through the api, but couldn’t find what i was looking for.

if someone could please point me in the right direction to format dates,
that would be great. thanks

I am not sure if it’s the best solution, but I use strftime.
