As a developer, you may have encountered the 'Invalid Input: Date_Trans' error when working with date objects. This error occurs when the input to the
Date.parse() method is not in the correct format. In this guide, we will explain what causes this error and provide a step-by-step solution to fix it.
Understanding the Cause of the Error
Before we dive into the solution, let's first understand what causes the 'Invalid Input: Date_Trans' error. This error occurs when the input to the
Date.parse() method is not in the correct format. The
Date.parse() method expects its input to be in the ISO 8601 format, which is
yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss.sssZ. If the input is not in this format, the method will return
NaN, which causes the error.
Now that we understand the cause of the error, let's move on to the step-by-step solution to fix it.
Check the input format: The first step is to check if the input to the
Date.parse() method is in the correct format. If it is not, you need to convert it to the correct format before passing it to the method.
Use the Date constructor: Instead of using the
Date.parse() method, you can create a new
Date object using the
Date constructor. This constructor accepts parameters in different formats, including ISO 8601 format.
- Use a regular expression: You can also use a regular expression to validate the input format before passing it to the
