Mathieu:

What is "DateString2"?

If you have a control that has a DateTime value, you can do this:

DateTimeValue.ToString("dd-MM-yyyy")

to format the date.  Make sure you cap the "MM", as the lower case "m" means "minute"; the upper case "M" means "month"

I suggest you to look a the CultureInfo class provided by the .Net framework whcih is used by the HttpContext.CurrentCulture and CurrentUICulture. By setting the correct culture you can change the way datetime objects are shown on the screen. The easiest way would be by setting the correct property in the web.config.

For example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
  <globalization fileEncoding="utf-8" requestEncoding="utf-8" responseEncoding="utf-8" culture="nl-NL" uiCulture="nl-NL" />
 </system.web>
</configuration>

Look at the properties culture and uiCulture.

should be

... culture you can change the way datetime objects are shown on the screen and how they are used within your system.

However, when you are talking with a database you might have to always work with american date format (mm-dd-yyyy).
