are you sure?

this is the code in VB.Net

        Dim d As new Date(2004, 10, 1)
        MsgBox(d.ToString())

it shows -> 10/1/2004 12:00:00 AM

and for C#.net

      DateTime d=new DateTime(2004,10,1);
      MessageBox.Show(d.ToString());

yeilds the same result

can you post your code? may be theres some problem somewhere else

Enjoy!

There is surely something else. I just tested it ok with this:

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    Dim dt As Date = New Date(2004, 10, 1)
    MessageBox.Show(dt)
End Sub

Can you show your own code?

Sorry, i forgot to mencion that i executed that code in the debug imediate window in a asp.net application, in there the comand "?new date(2004,1,1).ToString" returns "01-01-0001"
but i didn't tested it in runtime.

Now i've tried your code and it works, but in the imediate window doesn't, maybe because it can't allocate new objects??

The immediate widnow is used when debugging an application for evaluating expressions, print variable values, or execute statements. It can also be used to change the value of a variable during debug or even to execute a function or statement.

It CANNOT make new variables. That's why the default date is showing when to try to get the output (01-01-0001)

it actually sets the object to nothing if you try it. for example if you have a variable declared as date, using immediate window to set it to a new object actually sets the variable to nothing, there by defaulting to the value #1/1/0001#

the scope again is the current executing code
