Hi I've tried several things and all of them are still giving me the time as well as the date.  I need a UK date only and tried:

string dateN = String.Format("{0:d/M/yyyy}", catchDate);

This STILL gives me time.  What do I need to do to stop the time displaying?

If catchDate is a string , the format won't do nothing good.

First make sure that catchDate is a date by casting catchDate to a datetime. I haven't done C++ for 2 decades, but if I remember well this is the right syntax.

String.Format("{0:d/M/yyyy}", (datetime) catchDate);

Then, you have to be aware that / in s format requests the date separator, not a slash. On many computers that will generate a - instead of a /. If you want to be sure to get the slash, use a backslash in front of it:

String.Format("{0:d\/M\/yyyy}", (datetime) catchDate);
