Problem: How to format output text field value on VF page and also number formatting?

Description: In a situation I have date field on the vf page which is binded to date field having value in format “Thu Dec 1 07:00:11 GMT 2016”. But I want to display it in this format “12/01/13”. So instead of changing the field value you can format the output field on vf page.

Solution: In Apex Controller:

String datevalue=’Thu Dec 1 07:00:11 GMT 2016’;
Integer numberValue=789.189;

On VF Page:

1. Format Date Field:

                    
Format                                                     Output
{0, date, short} 	            	 	12/01/16
{0, date, medium}           	  	           Dec 01, 2016
{0, date, long}   	            	 	December 01, 2016
{0, date, full}    	             	           Thursday, December 01, 2016
                      {0, date, yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss a}          2016-Dec-01 07:00:11 AM GMT

2. Format Number Field:

   	     
Format                                                              Output
{0, number, integer}       	                                 789
{0, number, currency}    	                                 $789.189
{0, number, 0000.0}       	                                 0789.1
{0, number, ####.#}      	                                 789.1
{0, number, 0.0000}       	                                 789.1890
{0, number, #.####}      	                                 789.189
