How to Give the Date in Protractor?

If you are using Protractor to test your AngularJS application, you may need to give the current date as input for some test scenarios. Here are a few ways to do that:

Method 1: Using JavaScript Date Object

You can use the JavaScript Date Object to get the current date in the required format. Here's the code:

var currentDate = new Date();
var day = currentDate.getDate();
var month = currentDate.getMonth() + 1;
var year = currentDate.getFullYear();
var formattedDate = month + '/' + day + '/' + year;

The getDate() method returns the day of the month (1-31), getMonth() method returns the month (0-11), and getFullYear() method returns the year (4 digits). We add 1 to the month value because it is zero-indexed (January is 0).

Method 2: Using Moment.js Library

Moment.js is a popular JavaScript library for working with dates and times. You can use it in your Protractor tests as well. Here's the code:

var moment = require('moment');
var formattedDate = moment().format('MM/DD/YYYY');

The moment() function returns a Moment object representing the current date and time. The format() method converts the date to the specified format. In this case, we use 'MM/DD/YYYY' format.

Method 3: Using Date-fns Library

Date-fns is another popular JavaScript library for working with dates and times. Here's the code for using it:

var format = require('date-fns/format');
var currentDate = new Date();
var formattedDate = format(currentDate, 'MM/DD/YYYY');

The format() function formats the date according to the specified pattern ('MM/DD/YYYY' in this case).
