Hi

I have a GridView in ASP.net 4 that pulls data from a SQL Server 2008 Table whose structure is shown in the imagke below.  The [Start date] and [End date] columns that are formatted as date show both the date and the time (12:00:00).
What VB code would I use to reformat these two columns to show the date only.
Thanks

Hi,

I don't think you can change the Format of the Column by code, but you can change the format of the cells of that column using the RowDataBound event, here is an example assuming that your StartDate field is in the second Column of you gridview

Hope it helps
Protected Sub GridView1_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowDataBound

        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then

            Dim dr As DataRowView
            Dim dtDate As DateTime

            dr = e.Row.DataItem
            dtDate = DateTime.Parse(dr("StartDate").ToString)
            e.Row.Cells(1).Text = dtDate.ToString("MM-dd-yyyy")

        End If

    End Sub

Open in new window
