          Hi WelcomeCan,


          Make use of the DateFormatter and format your date as you wish to display using formatString property..


          Check below for Sample code..example....



          <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
          <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml">


                      import mx.events.ValidationResultEvent;           
                      private var vResult:ValidationResultEvent;

                      // Event handler to validate and format input.           
                      private function Format():void
                          vResult = dateVal.validate();
                          if (vResult.type==ValidationResultEvent.VALID) {
                          else {
                              formattedDate.text= "";

              <mx:DateFormatter id="dateFormatter" formatString="month: MM, day: DD, year: YYYY"/>

              <mx:DateValidator id="dateVal" source="{dob}" property="text" inputFormat="mm/dd/yyyy"/>

              <mx:Panel title="DateFormatter Example" width="95%" height="95%"
                      paddingTop="10" paddingLeft="5" paddingRight="5" paddingBottom="10">

                  <mx:Form width="100%">
                      <mx:FormItem label="Enter date (mm/dd/yyyy):" width="100%">
                          <mx:TextInput id="dob" text=""/>

                      <mx:FormItem label="Formatted date: " width="100%">
                          <mx:TextInput id="formattedDate" text="" editable="false"/>

                          <mx:Button label="Validate and Format" click="Format();"/>

            Instead use this utils everytime you want the date format
