Angular10 getLocaleDateFormat() Function

  • Last Updated : 13 Aug, 2021

In this article, we are going to see what is getLocaleDateFormat in Angular 10 and how to use it.

The getLocaleDateFormat is used to get the localized date-value formating for the given locale.

Syntax:

getLocaleDateFormat(locale: string, width: FormatWidth): string

NgModule: Module used by getLocaleDateFormat is:

  • CommonModule

Approach: 



  • Create the angular app to be used
  • In app.module.ts import LOCALE_ID because we need locale to be imported for using get getLocaleDateFormat.
import { LOCALE_ID, NgModule } from '@angular/core';
  • In app.component.ts import getLocaleDateFormat and LOCALE_ID
  • inject LOCALE_ID as a public variable.
  • In app.component.html show the local variable using string interpolation
  • serve the angular app using ng serve to see the output.

Parameters:

  • locale: A string containing locale code with rules.
  • width: The format type.

Return value:

  • string: string of localized formatting strings.

Example 1:

app.module.ts




import { LOCALE_ID, NgModule } 
        from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule }
        from '@angular/platform-browser';
  
import { AppRoutingModule } 
        from './app-routing.module';
import { AppComponent } 
        from './app.component';
  
@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AppComponent
  ],
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    AppRoutingModule
  ],
  providers: [
      { provide: LOCALE_ID, useValue: 'en-GB' },
  ],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }

app.component.ts




import {FormStyle,
        getLocaleDateFormat, 
        TranslationWidth, 
        FormatWidth} 
        from '@angular/common';
  
import {Component, 
        Inject,OnInit, 
        LOCALE_ID } 
        from '@angular/core';
