Note: during using to...String methods it is necessaryto be careful because of specific formatting of data and time on the locale.

2. Custom formatting (year, month, day) example

function renderNumber(value, length) {
    var result = value.toString();

    for(; length > result.length; length -= 1)
        result = '0' + result;

    return result;
}

var now = new Date();

var year = now.getFullYear();
