To convert a string to a date in React Native with Moment.js, follow these steps:

  1. First, install Moment.js in your React Native project by running the following command:
1
npm install moment


  1. Import Moment.js in your component file:
1
import Moment from 'moment';


  1. Use Moment.js to convert the string to a date. For example, if you have a string variable dateString representing a date in a specific format, you can convert it to a Date object like this:
1
2
const dateString = '2022-12-31';
const date = Moment(dateString, 'YYYY-MM-DD').toDate();


  1. You can then use the date variable in your React Native component as needed. Make sure to format the date according to your requirements using Moment.js methods.


That's it! You have now successfully converted a string to a date in React Native using Moment.js.
