Removing the 12:00 timestamp from Calendar View

Occasionally, you have a calendar full of all-day events and you don't want the calendar cluttered up with redundant timestamps.  Here's a simple client-side script, suitable for framing (or a master page, or a content editor web part) that will cut down on the visual noise.

<script language="JavaScript">
var allDates = document.getElementsByTagName("nobr");
for(var i=0;i 0) {
      allDates[i].innerHTML = allDates[i].innerHTML.replace("12:00 AM","");


  • While this would certainly strip that out, why not just put the value you want in your textbox/label to start?

    // Display using current (en-us) culture's short date format

    DateTime thisDate = new DateTime(2008, 3, 15);

    Console.WriteLine(thisDate.ToString("d")); &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; // Displays 3/15/2008

  • Hi Russell,

    Thanks for weighing in. You're right about correct server-side output being preferable; however, the vast majority of SharePoint users aren't going to have programmatic access to the Calendar API, and even if they do, it's a hefty task to change the way it spits out data. This can be done by a power user with the browser UI in about a minute.

  • I cant get this to work. I want to remove the time stam from a Date and Time field on the Display form of a custom list.

  • &quot;This can be done by a power user with the browser UI in about a minute.&quot;

    I created a calendar view for an activities list. &nbsp;The monthly view shows the 12:00am - 12:00am line which is useless, takes precious space, and is misinforming. &nbsp;I would love to implement your solution but not sure how based on your comment. &nbsp;I don't have access to Designer.

    Would appreciate if you could explain how to implement the code via the browser UI (and save it to the view)
