I recently had a question answered about formatting the way a date was displayed in a gridview, so I has 31/01/2013 00-00-00, adding {0:dd-MM-yyyy}, then took out the time and solved my issue.
I'm new to this and can't work out how I would fix this in a edittemplate field with a calendar control embedded ??

When I select a date within the calendar, it appears as 31/01/2013 00:00:00, when I update the gridview. However on columns that I don't have as edit templates I simply add the {0:dd-MM-yyyy} to dataformatstring column.

In case you are using a label

Use
Text='<%# Eval("DateColumn","{0:dd-MM-yyyy}") %>'

Open in new window

in case of bound field

<asp:BoundField DataField="date1" ApplyFormatInEditMode="True" HeaderText="date1"  htmlencode="false"
       SortExpression="date1" DataFormatString="{0:d}" />

if you use textbox or ajax control to display

<asp:TextBox id="txtDate" runat="server" text='<%# Eval("Your_Date_Column", "{0:MMMM d, yyyy}") %>

<ajaxToolkit:CalendarExtender ID="cal" runat="server" PopupButtonID="txt"
                                                                        TargetControlID="txte" CssClass="AjaxCalendar" Format="dd/MM/yyyy" />
