I’m trying to create some Dates which I want to display in “mm-dd-yyyy” format. The documentation (https://docs.julialang.org/en/v1/stdlib/Dates/#Constructors) only seems to give examples where the dates are in “yyyy-mm-dd” format. Here’s what I tried:
using Dates df = DateFormat("mm-dd-yyyy") date = Date("01-03-2020", df)
This displays as
2020-01-03, but I want it to display as
01-03-2020 (i.e. January 3rd, 2020). I also want to display dates in
mm-dd-yyyy format when they appear in a DataFrame. Is there is a simple way to do this?
Edit: I just learned from here Wikibooks that the following will display the date in “mm-dd-yyyy” format as a String:
But is there a way to just change the format in which Date objects are displayed, without having to create a new String object?
