Recently the source code we downloaded for one of our Android app. It was using the Birthdate format “YYYY-MM-DD” but most of our android app users are Indian and the most commonly used date format in India is DD-MM-YYYY, hence we needed to change the php API calls made by the app to change the date formats.
So, this date February 10 2021, i.e. 2021-02-10 can be converted to commonly used date format in India i.e. 10-02-2021 in php as,
<?php current_displayed_date = "2021-02-10" $timestamp = strtotime($current_displayed_date); formatted_date = date("d-m-Y", $timestamp); echo $formatted_date ?>
