I've got a .NET service that returns JSON. By default, .NET will return strings that look like "\/Date(47825093485)\/" for any date formats. You can read about that here:
I couldn't figure out how to get Flex to do anything meaningful with that, so I changed my service to return the datetime as a string. I can format it however I want. I tried this format: "08/20/2010 16:32:47". But, again, Flex doesn't parse that, it just returns it as a string. Is there any format I can use to get Flex to automatically parse the value into a Date object? Or do I need to return a string from my service, then manually parse it into a Date object on the Flex side?
Thanks for any tips...
My question wasn't about how to parse the string into a Date object. It was if there is a format that Flex "likes" and will automatically parse for me.
If I have trouble parsing the string into a Date object I'll come back and ask about that... hopefully I'll be able to figure that out :-)
