Date Parsing

Hi,

How do I parse a date string such the following:

May  6 2010  7:18PM
Apr 30 2010 11:27AM

Into a DateTime?

Thanks
C#

You can use DateTime.ParseExact method to specify the exact format (like MMM d yyyy h:mmtt) that you are passing in

DateTime dt = DateTime.ParseExact("May  6 2010  7:18PM", "MMM d yyyy h:mmtt", null)

I use

DateTime dt = DateTime.Parse(Value.Trim(), CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo("nl-NL").DateTimeFormat, DateTimeStyles.AllowInnerWhite | DateTimeStyles.AssumeLocal | DateTimeStyles.NoCurrentDateDefault);

Its parses lots of different formats.

Replace the "nl-NL" by your preferred locale ID.
