Good Afternoon

I have a DataGridView that contains a User Entry column.  I load a default value dates into the column in the MM/DD/YYYY format.  The user can accept the default or change it to a different value.  Is there a function that will tell me if what the user entered is a valid date regardless of the format?  In other words, does vb.net "know" or have a list of acceptable date formats that it can check a value against and say if it matched a correct format or not?

Thanks,
Ed

If you want to use a validator control, you can use the <asp:RangeValidator type="Date"...
