Java -Retrieve current date and time

Ask a question



Issue


I need to display JFrame with labels and next to these labels, the date and time at which they were typed.
For this I need to retrieve and display the date and time in a JLabel but I can not even recover those below in a simple format such as: DD/MM/YYYY and HH/ MM/SS.

Solution


You must use the Date class from the java.util package
Inside, you have the Date () constructor which creates the current date. To obtain a more readable form you do a:


Date myDate = new Date();  
// Display:  
System.out.println(myDate.toString());


Thanks to maily for this tip.
