I have written a C# website using visual studio 2008. I have created a dataset which is filled by the results of a stored procedure. I am then using an objectdatasource bound to a reportviewer control to show the data in my dataset which is filtered on two user input textbox controls that have datetime values attached to them. The attached code is what I have written to filter the data in my dataset behind a button click event on my frontend. At the moment the date data is shown in the reportviewer with a time attached to it where I only want to show the date and the date is shown in US format, i.e. 4/14/2009 instead of 14/4/2009? Can anyone help?

Thanks.
protected void CrucialDatesReportButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        ReportViewer1.Visible = true;
        SqlConnection thisConnection = new SqlConnection(thisConnectionString);
        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("CrucialDates.proc_ShowCrucialByDate", thisConnection);
        cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
        SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
        System.Data.DataSet thisDataSet = new System.Data.DataSet();
        SqlParameter crucialDueDateFromParameter = new SqlParameter("@DueDateFrom", SqlDbType.DateTime);
        SqlParameter crucialDueDateToParameter = new SqlParameter("@DueDateTo", SqlDbType.DateTime);
        crucialDueDateFromParameter.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input;
        crucialDueDateFromParameter.Value = tbCrucialSearchDateFrom.Text;
        cmd.Parameters.Add(crucialDueDateFromParameter);
        crucialDueDateToParameter.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input;
        crucialDueDateToParameter.Value = tbCrucialSearchDateTo.Text;
        cmd.Parameters.Add(crucialDueDateToParameter);
        da.Fill(thisDataSet);
 
        ReportDataSource datasource = new ReportDataSource("CrucialDatesDataSet_proc_ShowCrucialByDate", thisDataSet.Tables[0]);
 
        ReportViewer1.LocalReport.DataSources.Clear();
        ReportViewer1.LocalReport.DataSources.Add(datasource);
        if (thisDataSet.Tables[0].Rows.Count == 0)
        {
            lblMessage.Text = "No Crucial Dates are due!";
        }
 
        ReportViewer1.LocalReport.Refresh();
}

In the report file the textbox holding the dates should have a Format property - set this to dd/MM/yyyy

See code snippet.
It formats the currentdate, but you can enter your own ofcourse.


currentDate = Format(Now, "dd/MM/yyyy")
