my dates display 10/17/2006 3:16:40 PM in grid view and I want to cut off time and display only 10/17/2006. How can it be done?


<asp:GridView ID="AllProjects" runat="server"
                AutoGenerateColumns = "False"
                AllowPaging  = "True"
                AllowSorting = "True"
                CellPadding  = "4"
                ForeColor    = "#333333" Width=800px
                onpageindexchanging ="CustomersGridView_PageIndexChanging"
                OnSorting="AllProjects_Sorting"
                OnRowCommand="AllProjects_RowCommand"
                >
    <Columns>
       <asp:BoundField    HeaderText="Date"         DataField="DateCreated"     SortExpression="DateCreated" />

    </Columns>
                  <HeaderStyle         BackColor="#333399" ForeColor="White" Font-Bold="True" />
                  <RowStyle            BackColor="#CCCCCC" />
                  <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" />
                  <PagerStyle          BackColor="ControlDark" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
                  <Pagersettings       mode="NumericFirstLast" position="TopAndBottom" pagebuttoncount="5" />
              </asp:GridView>

Whoops, I didn't see the format you wanted at first ...

<asp:BoundField
  HeaderText="Date"
  DataField="DateCreated"
  DataFormatString="{0:dd/MM/yyyy}"
  SortExpression="DateCreated" />

this syntax does not change the date format, is it possible that it does not change the format because I don't use sqldatasource object when I bind to gridview. I bind on a backend like so  

AllProjects.DataSource = dv; //dataview object
AllProjects.DataBind();
