Try this:
function dateString(){
    var tday=new Date();
    var tdayy=tday.getYear();
    if (tdayy < 1000)
    var tdaym=tday.getMonth();
    var tdayd=tday.getDate();
    var tdayh=tday.getHours();
    var tdaymin=tday.getMinutes();
    if (tdaymin<10) tdaymin='0'+tdaymin.toString();
    var tdaysec=tday.getSeconds();
    if (tdaysec<10) tdaysec='0'+tdaysec.toString();
    DateTimeStr=tdaym+'/'+tdayd+'/'+tdayy+' '+tdayh+':'+tdaymin+':'+tdaysec
    return DateTimeStr;
<input type='text' name='DispDT'>
