Set Date to be the end of the following month?

Hi there wonder if you can help me?

If I have a variable called:

DateTime getLastMonthDate = new DateTime();

How do I set getLastMonthDate to be the end of the following month?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

try this:

DateTime now = DateTime.Now;
// add month
now = now.AddMonth(2);
// make date 1. that month
DateTime getLastMonthDate = new DateTime(now.Year, now.Month, 1);
// one day back
getLastMonthDate = getLastMonthDate.AddDays(1);

This should work;
