We have a S-control button which sys SendAttendancelist. The S-control calls the apex class Classobj in that we have a email that is sent out from apex while executing it sends out email with few details.

The requirement here is to display a additional Date time field in the email. However the User request it not to show time it should show only the Date. I tried to add the field in the Code but this was displaying in reverse.

The field that we added is Current Rivision- It is a Date field.

Please find the code below.

WebService static Id[] sendAttendanceList_TIS(Id ClassId) {

Please find the below image this is how the current revision field displayed in salesforce. enter image description here

Please advise how to correct this to show only the date that should be in MM/DD/YYY as per in salesforce screenshot. But in the above bold text the date format is displaying differently from the way is displays in salesforce.

Thanks for the help.


The standard string format includes the time (and will always be midnight). Use the format method:

HTMLBody = HTMLBody + 'Course Name: ' + classObj.Course_Name__r.Name + '<br>' + 'Current Revision:' + crs.Current_Revision__c.format() // ...
