Formatting datestamp gives me a wrong date[SOLVED]


#1

hello,
i am getting a datestamp from json file.it gives me the wrong date.back to 1970
i have this function in my controller

$scope.formatDate = function(date){
          var dateOut = new Date(date);
          return dateOut;
    };

then in the view

Date:{{article2.PhorumMessage.datestamp|date:"d/m/y à HH:mm"}}

how to fix that?
i am expecting 18 may 2017 i get 18/18/1970

thank you

Try ‘d MMMM yyyy’ as the format string for the date filter.

For more information see : https://docs.angularjs.org/api/ng/filter/date
