I have a DateTime value that needs to be converted to a formatted string.

DateTime dteChangeDate;

dteChangeDate = DateTime.Parse(calCalendar.SelectedDate.ToString());

Returns {5/4/2009 12:00:00 AM}

How do I convert this to the following string using C#:

string strChangeDate;

strChangeDate = a function or method of dteChangeDate that returns "20090504" ???

Thanks,
