getDate from String ? Should be easy

getDate from String ? Should be easy

This should be so simple, yet I'm having issues.

I'm passing a date to a page parameter and then want to pick the value up for some labelling. The URL is passing :


and I'm trying to get the Month and Year but when I try to convert the parameter to a date it either gives me a weird response or an error

  1. varThisYearText= toDate(input.startDate,"dd-MMM-YYYY");
  2. ...
  3. <text type='Text' value='<%=varThisYearText%>' size='15px' color='#000000' marginBottom='5px'> </text>
gives the result 26-Dec-2021

When I look up the deluge help page for getDate : it says :

Note: This function is applicable to all services, except Zoho Creator.

So how do I convert a string of "01-Jan-2022" to "Jan22" ?
