found out that the datetime is actually in string format,

therefore using the following :


string[] strSplitDuration = e.Row.Cells[5].Text.Split(' ');

            e.Row.Cells[5].Text = strSplitDuration[4];

            if (strSplitDuration[4] == "12:00AM")
            {
                e.Row.Cells[5].Text = "-";
            }

Open in new window
