Filter on Time in date time type field.

Hi
Nilesh here,
I have a dataset with a date time type filed. I want to filter that date time field. I want to do filter by time not whole date.

Suppose there is a date time like "2012-04-04 10:34:21", then I want to filter on only time like datetimefiled>="10:34:21".

So how can I solve this?
Thanks in advance.

you can use Dataview for  the dataset

DataView dv = new DataView(yourdataset);
dv.RowFilter="YourDatecolumn >= #yourdate#";

Also you can refer the below link:

Thanks dear kswathi,

I do not want to filter on date, I want to filter on only time like dateTimeFiled>="10:30" like that. No need to check date. its need to check only time.

You can use LINQ for it .

Example:
            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("ID",typeof(int)));
            dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Date",typeof(DateTime)));

            DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
            dr["ID"] = 1;
            dr["Date"] = new DateTime(2012,4,4,10,10,10);
            dt.Rows.Add(dr);
            dr = dt.NewRow();
            dr["ID"] = 1;
            dr["Date"] = new DateTime(2012,4,4,11,11,11);
            dt.Rows.Add(dr);
            dr = dt.NewRow();
            dr["ID"] = 1;
            dr["Date"] = new DateTime(2012,4,4,12,12,12);
            dt.Rows.Add(dr);

            DateTime ToCompare= new DateTime(2012,4,4,10,15,30);

            DataRow[] rows = dt.Rows.Cast<DataRow>().Where(x => (int.Parse(((DateTime)x["Date"]).ToString("HH")) * 3600 +
                                                                 int.Parse(((DateTime)x["Date"]).ToString("mm")) * 60 +
                                                                 int.Parse(((DateTime)x["Date"]).ToString("ss")))
                                                                 >= (ToCompare.Hour*3600 + ToCompare.Minute*60+ToCompare.Second)).ToArray();

Example I've provided will search all the rows with the time that are after the one I've provided (after 10:15:30). You'll need to convert it to seconds to compare the values. You can't just compare the string "11:11:11" >= "10:15:30"
