How to display current month in 3 chars (eg Aug)?

I see how to get the month as a digit (eg “8” for August) and how to get the full month name, but the web app I’m designing for uses “Aug 12, 2020” formatting. Anyone know how to get the month abbreviation? (I wish Axure would include an example next to each GetDate function, and/or post a nice organized guide that showed you how to get (or copy the text string for) a variety of date formats.

This might be what you’re looking for:

[[Now.getMonthName().substr(0,3)]]

Awesome - thanks Costa! I suspected some type of trim function might do it, but being a mostly non-scripter I couldn’t figure it out. It’d be nice if Axure would add a Now.getMonthAbbrev() :slight_smile:
Thanks again
