Convert DateTime to Date

  • I want to Convert DateTime into Date

    I have been trying this out ..below is the code snippet

    public void searchSFDC() {
        DateTime lastModDate ;
        for(sObject resultSet : searchResults[0]) { // searching only solutions
            SfResults sf = new SfResults();
            sf.lastModifiedDate = date.newinstance(lastModDate.year(),lastModDate.month(),;
    public class SfResults {
            public Date lastModifiedDate {get;set;}     

    But sf.lastModifiedDate is shown as 2014-04-11 00:00:00 .I do not want the 00:00:00 timestamp .How can we achieve this?

    Where is it shown, on the page?

  • Datetime objects have this date method:


    Returns the Date component of a Datetime in the local time zone of the context user.

    so your code can use it like this:

    Datetime dt = (Datetime) resultSet.get('LastModifiedDate');
    sf.lastModifiedDate =;

    (Generally you would need a null check in the code but as LastModifiedDate always has a value here you don't.)

    So this gets you the correct Date object value. But an answer is needed to mast0r's question to cover how to get the final presentation right.
