DateField setFormat not working

Hi there, I'm trying to set my DateField's format but it's not working. Right now I have:

DateField dateField = new DateField("Go to:",System.currentTimeMillis(), DateField.DATE);
dateField.setFormat(DateFormat.DATE_LONG);

 I get the error "Syntax error on token "setFormat", Identifier expected after this token" on setFormat and "Syntax error on token "DATE_LONG", VariableDeclaratorId expected after this token" on DATE_LONG

Hi Beenjaminnn,

 

I am not getting your question more clear.

If you want to fetch the date value. then use this.

DateFormat dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:ss");
Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
calendar.setTime(new Date(System.currentTimeMillis()));
String DateTimeString = dateFormat.format(calendar, new StringBuffer(), null).toString();

If this code help you then, like it.
