Hi

How can I programatically set the where parameter of a LINQ DataSource control for a datetime Type?

Have tried thses but no luck

LinqDataSource1.Where = "SomeDate = 11/11/2001";

LinqDataSource1.Where = "SomeDate = @SomeDate";
LinqDataSource1.WhereParameters.Add("SomeDate", DbType.DateTime, "11/11/2001");

LinqDataSource1.WhereParameters["SomeDate"].DefaultValue = "11/11/2001";

Try this

Dim objFilterdata = From objSource in LinqDataSource1 Where objSource.SomeDate = "11/11/2001"

this is in vb.net

Thanks For the help

This i s what eventually fixed the problem it was alot to do with the format of the date yyyy-MM-dd



 
StringBuilder whereClause = new StringBuilder();

 DateTime datDatePurchase = Convert.ToDateTime(DateControl8.wctxtDateControl.Text.HtmlEncode().ToString());
            whereClause.Append("DatePurchased >= DateTime.Parse(\"" + datDatePurchase.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd") + "\")");

LinqDataSource1.Where = whereClause.ToString();
