The server side is in C# and it returns object array list as json format. There is one field in the object model, it is DateTime type, and its value is
While in the page side, it receives
/Date(-62135596800000)/ in string. I guess this is because of the object is serialized. And in javascirpt, I try to convert it back to Date type.
var timeSpan = element.DateModify.replace('Date','').replace('(','').replace(')','').replace(///g,''); console.log(timeSpan); var d = new Date(parseInt(timeSpan)); console.log(d);
0001-01-01 08:05:43, not
0001-01-01 00:00:00. Why is it?
DateTime.MinValue is 0001-01-01 00:00:00 UTC. And that is indeed 0001-01-01 08:05:43 in your local time zone (whatever that may be, probably
Asia/Shanghai or somewhere near that). When you
Date, it displays the date in your local time zone. The
Date value is correct. It’s just displayed in a different format.
Two simple ways to make it display the UTC time of 00:00:00 is to call
console.log(new Date(-62135596800000).toISOString()); console.log(new Date(-62135596800000).toUTCString());
