you could construct a new datetime value from it's year, month and day values, and add 1 day to that:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.datetime.adddays%28v=vs.71%29.aspx

knowing that 1 day is worth
>= start of day  AND < start of next day

Shaun KlineLead Software EngineerCommented:
Do you need end of day, or start of next day?
This formula does start of next day:
DATEADD(dd, 1, DATEDIFF(dd, 0, GETDATE()))

Start of next week is:
DATEADD(dd, 8 - DATEPART(dw, getdate()), DATEDIFF(dd, 0, GETDATE()))

Start of next month is:
DATEADD(dd, -DAY(GETDATE()) + 1, DATEADD(mm, 1, DATEDIFF(dd, 0, GETDATE())))

From a datetime such as the above do you want to know how much time it is before the next day/week/month ?

from date '2011-01-01 12:14:44' i need end of that day so output should be '2011-01-01 23:59:59'. I know i could do this by adding '23:59:59' but i wonder if .net have such function (and for end of month, year, week)

Well, since the end of the day (to my knowledge) is always, always, always 23:59:59 you could just use the .Year, .Month and .Day components of your starting date and pass'em to the constructor for a new DateTime with 23:59:59 hard-coded for the time portion.

DateTime testDate = DateTime.Parse("2011-01-01 12:14:44");

DateTime endOfDay = new DateTime(testDate.Year, testDate.Month, testDate.Day, 23, 59, 59);

Open in new window


Or use just the Date portion of testDate, add one day, then subtract one second:
DateTime testDate = DateTime.Parse("2011-01-01 12:14:44");

DateTime endOfDay = testDate.Date.AddDays(1).AddSeconds(-1);

Open in new window
