Hello my fellow daniwebbers, I have yet another question.
I have a date, which is pulled from a database, that I need to convert to another form of that date.
What i am wanting to do is turn the current date format into two digit month/day with four digit year.
Here is the problem.
Upon converting the date, the return result is the format string??
What I have tried:
Anyone have any ideas?
try it this way:
string date1 = "1/2/2001";
DateTime date = Convert.ToDateTime(date1);
//this is what you have to do:
string date2 = date.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy", System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);
My 1st two lines of code are only example to get an actual date (you already have a date from database).
Found the solution.
Had to double parse the dates.
One string split to remove the space, then another to remove the /'s
Then use the pad function to add the 0's.
On the other hand, thanks for the suggestions Bonca.
