usually date format depends on regional settings

if you dont want to change the code

change the regional settings.

otherwise i would recommend formatting it manually to make sure it gets displayed the exact way you want like

check code below gets todays date in the format you like and stores it in a label
Label1.Text = Date.Today.Day & "-" & Date.Now.Month & "-" & Date.Now.Year & " " & Date.Now.Hour & ":" & Date.Now.Minute & ":" & Date.Now.Second & "." & Date.Now.Millisecond

Open in new window

change column in gridview to template field and add

<asp:TextBox ID="tbDate" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("IssueDate","{0:dd-MMM-yyyy hh:mm:ss.000}") %>'></asp:TextBox>

or if its just for display

<asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("IssueDate","{0:dd-MMM-yyyy hh:mm:ss.000}") %>'></asp:Label>

Or something like that, you can change the format string to suit
