i got a datagrid which i want to show the date
as "dd-mm-yyyy hh:mm:ss". the data in the sql server table
is defined as datatime. however, when i select the data
into a datagrid my data->
"01-12-2001 00:00:00" becomes "01-12-2001" in the datagrid. It just never shows the "00:00:00"
but if the data is "01-12-2001 23:59" it shows the data
in its orginal form eg '01-12-2001 23:59". how to solve this problem i have?

Not very sure if this can work for SQL Server:

Select Format(myDate,'dd-mm-yyyy hh:mm:ss') As myDate From myTable

Well, I just did this:
1. Right click on the grid, select Properties.
2. Click the Format Tab
3. Select the date/time column from Format Item Combo.
4. Select Format Type = Custom
5. Format string text box appears, create a mask.  Mine looks like:
dd-mm-yyyy hh:mm:ss

The column data looks like:
01-02-2002 00:00:00
01-02-2002 01:01:01
02-02-2002 12:59:00

I'm doing something similar in one of my data grids.   I was able to format a date column by using the StdDataFormat.  Try changing the line where I have objFormat.Format = "mm/dd/yyy" to the format that you want.

Dim objFormat As StdDataFormat 'for using DataFormat

For Each c In dbgCourtHearings.Columns
  Select Case c.DataField
  Case "Court_Date_ID"
    c.Visible = False
  Case "Court_Hearing_Date"
    c.Width = 1100
    Set objFormat = New StdDataFormat
    objFormat.Format = "mm/dd/yyyy"
    Set c.DataFormat = objFormat
  Case "Court_Hearing_Time"
    c.Width = 1000
    'set time format
    Set objFormat = New StdDataFormat
    objFormat.Format = "Medium Time"
    Set c.DataFormat = objFormat
  Case "Hearing_Type_Description"
    c.Width = 2700
  End Select
Next c
