I was trying to find some example to retrieve user based on Date Range.

For Eg: if i give a date like 1/01/2011 to 31/01/2011 in my windows application.

I wanna retrieve the user info , created on these date ranges.

For Eg: User Bob Created on 15/01/2001,then i have to retrieve that user name.

but am not sure what's the "Search Filter" for that.

Any help appreciated

HI,
    get the dates entered by the user and convert it to datetime....
like this
Get the Date from the two date fields and convert them to DateTime by using Convert.ToDateTime(DateFiledValue) write a query like this
string SQL=Select Username from UserMst where name='Bob' and Created on between 'Converted From Date Field Value ' AND 'Converted To Date Field Value'.....
This query will give the desired result............
If Any Help please Let me know...
Mark it as answer if it is helpful...

Thanks Ramki,

I checked codeproject,none of them give an example or syntax for "date range" search filter.

I can't use Sql Server,bcoz my requirement is to write a Class Library file (DLL) on C#.

Appreciated for your help

Perhaps you can retrieve all the users (without the date-range) and check this in an if-statement to see if the user is created within these dates?

if(user.properties["whenCreated"].value > StartDate && user.properties["whenCreated"].value < EndData)
{
user.properties["whenCreated"].value.ToString()
}
