I am in a situation where I need to find out the total hour difference between two date objects but the thing is dates aren’t present in the actual format.
Date 1: 6 Apr, 2015 14:45
Date 2: 7 May, 2015 02:45
If it would have been in standard format, simply I would have been used below method:
var hours = Math.abs(date1 - date2) / 36e5;
I am not sure how do I get the hour difference here… please help.
You can create date objects out of your strings:
const dateOne = "6 Apr, 2015 14:45"; const dateTwo = "7 May, 2015 02:45"; const dateOneObj = new Date(dateOne); const dateTwoObj = new Date(dateTwo); const milliseconds = Math.abs(dateTwoObj - dateOneObj); const hours = milliseconds / 36e5; console.log(hours);
