i have a input like

13/12/2008 (dd/mm/yyyy) or 13-12-2008,

I want to change the format to 12/13/2008 (mm/dd/yyyy) or 12-13-2008.

Is it possible? Is there any function available?

Please advise.

Thank You<br />Edward

You could parse the string with the input format, then format the resulting Date object with the output format. For example:
