You can use one of the appropriate Standard DateTime Format Strings such as d or D.

You should be able to use

DateTime dt = DateTime.Now

dt.ToString("d")  //this will format as short date time

FYI: If you want to do it at the query level, for databinding purposes, etc. you can also use

SELECT CONVERT(varchar(10), datefield, 101) AS DateField FROM Table

If you are using a GridView, you can set the DataFormatString to "{0:d}". Then you need to set the HtmlEncode value to "False" on that column.

If you are setting the date/time value to a string, you can use the format: string shortDate = DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString();

Iam using a Detailsview and field is a template field. What i realised is that the DateFormatString property disappears once a filed is tuned to a template field. With non Template fields "{0:d}" on DateFormatstring works.

 You should be able to do something like: 


1    <ItemTemplate> 
2          <asp:Label ID="BirthDateLabel" Runat="Server" 
3                     Text='<%# Eval("BirthDate", "{0:d}") %>' />
4        </ItemTemplate>


Hope this helps

You can also do

    <asp:Label ID="BirthDateLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Convert.ToDateTime(Eval("BirthDate")).ToShortDateString() %>' />

 If your not using a Template field you can use...


<asp:BoundField DataField="AppointmentDate" HeaderText="AppointmentDate" SortExpression="AppointmentDate" DataFormatString="{0:d}" />

Date entered...add time value to make date/time field
Windows XP Professional InfoMaker v 9.0.2 Build 7509 Our database contains a date/time stamp for when a specific activity happens to each shipment.

How can I create a computed field that will basically concatenate/amend the entered date with 9:20 that will later be used for criteria in returning rows?

How to remove the date part of a Date/Time value in MS Access
I am inserting a time value into a MS Access Date/Time field and notice that MS Access does not display the date portion of the value but when I look at the same data in my programming using a TADOTable component I am seeing the date of 12/30/1899 in conjunction with my time value. I read that Access is handling this within MS Access so that when a 0.sometime value is inserted it does not display the date. How do I handle this within my Delphi program so that I can display the time only in a Date/Time type field? Jeff Howard wrote: > I am inserting a time value into a MS Access Date/T...

Hello,I have a column on a GridView that is formatted to only display the time part of a date time field. However, whenever I edit the cell value the Date part of the field is changed to today's date. The way I've got round this is to implement the CellValueChanged event. Is there a better way of doing this? Code is below. private void dgTimeSlots_CellValueChanged(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e) { int col = e.ColumnIndex; int row = e.RowIndex; if (col >= 0 && row >= 0) { // the correct date ...

date/time or date and time
I am setting up an SQL database and I will need to get differences in dates. For example I have a start date, start time, completion date and completion time and I want to get the difference between the start and completion. Would it be better to have one field with both date and time in it, or better to have a date field and a time field? Even though I have already started setting up the tables with seperate fields for date and time I am now leaning toward one field with date/time in it. (Only because that is the way I had to do it when setting up an Excel spreadsheet for a similar ta...
