if statements within my gridview

Hi,

I have the following column in my gridview:
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Date Resolved">    
                <ItemTemplate>                    
                    <asp:label ID="lblResolvedDate" runat="Server" text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"DateResolved","{0 :dd/MM/yyyy}")%>' ></asp:label>                    
                </ItemTemplate>                                
            </asp:TemplateField>

I want an if statement within it to say if the date is "01-jan-1900" then display "-" rather than the date value

How do I do this?

try this:

<%# Convert.ToDateTime(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"DateResolved")) == Convert.ToDateTime("01-jan-1900") ? "-" : DataBinder.Eval("DateResolved","{0:d}") %>

Note: please check the format also.

If its VB.NET, use the IIF function

<asp:label ID="lblResolvedDate" runat="Server" text='<%#IIF(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"DateResolved","{0 :dd/MM/yyyy}")="01-jan-1900", "-", DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"DateResolved","{0 :dd/MM/yyyy}"))%>' ></asp:label>
