Javascript Question

Change the date format to yyyy-mm-dd in Datepicker

I am using Datepicker for my HTML field .
The HTML code is :

<input type="text" id="from-datepicker"/>


The Jquery code to set and get the date picker fields is :

$("#from-datepicker").datepicker({ dateFormat: 'yy-mm-dd'});
$("#from-datepicker").on("change", function () {
var fromdate = $(this).val();
alert(fromdate);
});


This code, however, displays the field in
'mm-dd-yyyy'
format.
Can someone tell me where am I going wrong ?

My imported CDNs are :

<script type="text/javascript"
src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/bootstrap-datepicker/1.6.0/js/bootstrap-datepicker.min.js"></script>

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/bootstrap-datepicker/1.6.1/css/bootstrap-datepicker3.min.css">


Thanks in advance.

Answer

Yes, change dateFormat to just format and you need 4 sets of 'y's

Sample code:

<script   src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-2.2.3.min.js"   integrity="sha256-a23g1Nt4dtEYOj7bR+vTu7+T8VP13humZFBJNIYoEJo="   crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

$( document ).ready(function() {
    $("#from-datepicker").datepicker({ 
        format: 'yyyy-mm-dd'
    });
    $("#from-datepicker").on("change", function () {
        var fromdate = $(this).val();
        alert(fromdate);
    });
}); 
</script>
<input type="text" id="from-datepicker"/>
