preferredOrder

Type: Object or String

parseFormat tries to figure out the the order of day/month/year by itself if it finds 3 numbers separated by ., - or /. But if it can't, it will fallback to preferredOrder, which can either be set as an object to differentiate by separator, or as a simple string.

Default value:

preferredOrder: {
  '/': 'MDY',
  '.': 'DMY',
  '-': 'YMD'
}

Usage

parseFormat('10.10.2010', {preferredOrder: 'DMY'});
// ☛ DD.MM.YYYY
parseFormat('10.10.2010', {preferredOrder: 'MDY'});
// ☛ MM.DD.YYYY
parseFormat('10.10.2010', {preferredOrder: {
  '/': 'MDY',
  '.': 'DMY',
  '-': 'YMD'
}});
// ☛ MM.DD.YYYY
parseFormat('10/10/2010', {preferredOrder: {
  '/': 'MDY',
  '.': 'DMY',
  '-': 'YMD'
}});
// ☛ DD/MM/YYYY
