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(),lastModDate.day());
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? Commented Apr 16, 2014 at 9:58

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 = dt.date();

(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.
