I want to have a <div> control on my page that only displays up to a certain date. I tried this:


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (System.DateTime.Now > "08-15-2011")
        {
            earningscall.Visible = false;
        }
    }

But, that gives me this error:

CS0019: Operator '>' cannot be applied to operands of type 'System.DateTime' and 'string'

How can I use the current date to determine whether or not to display a control?
