Hi,
I want to change date format of pubDate to dd-mm-yy.

Code is:
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:XmlDataSource ID="XmlDataSource1" runat="server" DataFile="http://blogs.msdn.com/amit_chatterjee/rss.xml"
            XPath="rss/channel/item [position()<=1]" CacheDuration="60"></asp:XmlDataSource>
    </div>
        <asp:DataList  Runat="server" DataSourceID="XmlDataSource1" >
            <ItemTemplate>
                <asp:Label ID="Label1" Runat="server" Text='<%# XPath("pubDate") %>' ForeColor="black" Font-Bold="True"></asp:Label>
            </ItemTemplate>
        </asp:DataList>
    </form>
</body>

The output of above code is Sat, 13 Jun 2009 04:38:00 GMT can you help me how to convert this to 04:38 hrs, 13-06-09 .

Thanks in advance

I found the solution is
<%# String.Format("{0:HHmm 'hrs,' dd-MM-yy}", Convert.ToDateTime(XPath("pubDate")))%>

Cheers
