How can I get the "ISSUE #1" section
to work in ONE line without having
to create a "string today =....." VAR ?
--------------------------------------------
WORKS #1

      private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
      {
          string today = String.Format("Today is {0}", DateTime.Today.ToString("D"));
          MessageBox.Show(today);
      }
--------------------------------------------
WORKS #2

      private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
      {
          string today = "Today is " + DateTime.Today.ToString("D");
          MessageBox.Show(today);
      }
--------------------------------------------
ISSUE #1

      private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
      {
          MessageBox.Show("Today is " + DateTime.Today.ToString("D")");
      }
