Hi All,

For example, I have a serialized date as the following integer 1109808000000 which actually works out to be March 5th 2005...

Could anyone suggest how I can convert this serialized date to display as its human readable form using c#?

Many thanks,

Rit

Have you tried this http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6554407/deserialize-date1309498021672-in-to-datetime?

var serializer = new System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer();
string json = "\"\\/Date(1309498021672)\\/\"";
DateTime date = serializer.Deserialize<DateTime>(json);
// date is 7/1/2011 5:27:01 AM

And if you're using .NET 4.0 and you don't have System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer(); available, set the Target framework in your project properties to ".NET Framework 4" and not the Client framework and then add the System.Web.Exetensions dll as a reference.
