I have an input field in my visualforce page which uses the html 5 input element as
type="datetime-local". The value that I capture from the field is of the format
2016-04-09T23:58 . I want to use and save this field on to the database in salesforce and I cant assign the same value to the field directly. Even to parse salesforce expects a different format something like this
09/04/2016 5:10 PM.
If I can do something like
Datetime dt = DateTime.parse('24/11/2011 1:46 PM') then I can assign it to a field in Salesforce but there is nothing where I can use
2016-04-09T23:58 directly. I will have to convert
09/04/2016 5:10 PM and do it.
Is there any better way to achieve this or am I missing something here
