Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
Date now = cal.getTime();
DateFormat df = DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.MEDIUM);
if timeinput != null && timeinput.length() > 0) {
timeinput = timeinput.toUpperCase();
}
return DateFormat.getTimeInstance().format(now) + ” on ” + df.format(now);
Make sure to add all the neccessary Imports using Quick Fix.
