I wrote the following code

Date d = new Date();
CharSequence s = DateFormat.format("MMMM d, yyyy ", d.getTime());

But is asking me parameter, I want current date in string format,



so that I can set over

explain a bit, if you think something is necessary, I am new to Android Development.


You can use the SimpleDateFormat class for formatting date in your desired format.

Just check this link where you get idea for your example.

For example:

String dateStr = "04/05/2010"; 

SimpleDateFormat curFormater = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy"); 
Date dateObj = curFormater.parse(dateStr); 
SimpleDateFormat postFormater = new SimpleDateFormat("MMMM dd, yyyy"); 

String newDateStr = postFormater.format(dateObj); 


Detailed example is here and here, I would suggest you to go through this example and understand the concept of SimpleDateFormat class.

Final Solution:

Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
System.out.println("Current time => " + c.getTime());

SimpleDateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMM-yyyy");
String formattedDate = df.format(c.getTime());
