string to datetime

How to convert String to datetime?
In my IQueryable I have this code.

        public IQueryable<SalesRecord> GetSalesRecordDatimeId(int branchid, string sDate)
        {
            return this.ObjectContext.SalesRecords.Where(so => so.BranchID == branchid && so.TheDate == sDate);

        }

It is error because the TheDate Data Type is set as datetime. I guess I need some converstion about this. How?

My xaml code as follows:
        private void button2_Click(object sender,  RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            int BrId = int.Parse(this.txtme.Text);
            string Mydate = string.Format(this.datePicker1.Text);
            if (_Context.EntityContainer != null) _Context.EntityContainer.GetEntitySet<SalesRecord>().Clear();
            _Context.Load(_Context.GetSalesRecordDatimeIdQuery(BrId,Mydate));    
        }

Which part of my codes need to change?

You could change the string to DateTime:


        public IQueryable<SalesRecord> GetSalesRecordDatimeId(int branchid, DateTime date)
        {
            return this.ObjectContext.SalesRecords.Where(so => so.BranchID == branchid && so.TheDate == date);

        }

It is error because the TheDate Data Type is set as datetime. I guess I need some converstion about this. How?

        private void button2_Click(object sender,  RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            int BrId = int.Parse(this.txtme.Text);
            DateTime Mydate = DateTime.Parse(this.datePicker1.Text);
            if (_Context.EntityContainer != null) _Context.EntityContainer.GetEntitySet<SalesRecord>().Clear();
            _Context.Load(_Context.GetSalesRecordDatimeIdQuery(BrId,Mydate));    
        }

there are a few good examples
if you can provide an example of what the Mydate  string is, I may be able to help further
