This is prob an easy question but I am having issue.  I need to print date time in the following format.

Input -> Date Jan 14, 2013 Time 1:02 pm

Output -> 20130114 1302

I used below but it just prints

yyyyMMddHHmm

string.Format("yyyy", DateTime.Now.Year) +
string.Format("MM", DateTime.Now.Month) +
string.Format("dd", DateTime.Now.Day)

string.Format("HH", DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay.Hours) + string.Format("mm", DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay.Minutes)

instead of using yyyy,MM, etc replace with {0} to hold the value.

You could do this:
string.Format("Date {0} {1}, {2} Time {3}:{4}", DateTime.Now.Month, DateTime.Now.Day, DateTime.Now.Year, DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay.Hours, DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay.Minutes)
