I have the following code:
.DateOpened = CDate(datarow.Item("DateOpened"))
.DateResolved = CDate(datarow.Item("DateResolved"))

The value of datarow.Item("DateOpened") = 2/28/2011 12:53:55 PM
The value of DateOpened = #12:00:00 AM#

How can that be?

The properties are show below.

The fields in the db are DateTime.

Can anyone see what is going on here?
Public Property DateResolved() As Date
        Get
            Return _dtDateResolved
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As Date)
            value = _dtDateResolved
        End Set
    End Property

    Public Property DateOpened() As Date
        Get
            Return _dtDateOpened
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As Date)
            value = _dtDateOpened
        End Set
    End Property

Hi,

Are you sure you are getting a value back from the database that isn't null?  The #12:00:00 AM# would indicate a null value was returned.

Take a look at this article, if you haven't already: http://vbnotebookfor.net/2007/09/27/introduction-to-nullable-types-in-vbnet/

Perhaps DateOpened  is nullable and null is stored in DB. This is why date returned is incorrect.

I've shown in the question that the value coming back from the db is not null?

If date is nullable, you can do something like this to get default value from DB

Select
Isnull(DateOpened, GetDate())
from ...

What DBMS are you pulling the data from?  SQL, Access, Oracle, etc.

I've got other properties working the same way elsewhere in the code.

It doesn't make any sense?!

Hi!

Does it worked for you:

    Public Property DateResolved() As DateTime
        Get
            Return _dtDateResolved
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As Date)
            value = _dtDateResolved
        End Set
    End Property

    Public Property DateOpened() As DateTime
        Get
            Return _dtDateOpened
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As Date)
            value = _dtDateOpened
        End Set
    End Property

Open in new window


I hope so changing every "Date" to "DateTime" can resolve the issue.

did you tried like this:
        Dim s As String = DataRow.Item("DateOpened").ToString
        Dim dt As DateTime = Convert.ToDateTime(s)

Right I have found the problem and I deserve to be sacked......but tut tut experts!!

Spot the mistake in my property!!!

Do we think this:
Set(ByVal value As Date)
            value = _dtDateResolved
        End Set

 should be this:??!!
Set(ByVal value As Date)
            _dtDateResolved = value
        End Set

Im such an idiot!!!!
