Hello, Experts!  I am using ASP.NET with C#.  
My gridview is built dynamically based on whatever table is being used.  I have Date, DateTime, and Time fields throughout my tables.  In the GrdView, my Dates are showing 12:00:00 for time where there should be no time.  I am trying to parse out the Date, but am stuck.  How do I set up the parse?   Here is my code:

protected void grdvwReview_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
 {
         
            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow) 
            {
                for (int i = 1; i < e.Row.Cells.Count; i++)
                {
                    BoundField field = (BoundField)((DataControlFieldCell)e.Row.Cells[i]).ContainingField;

                    if (field.HeaderText.Contains("Date"))
                    {
                        string l_type = "";
                        string strt = "";
                        l_type = CheckDataType(field.ToString());
                        if (l_type == "Date")
                        {
                            strt = DateTime.Parse(e.Row.Cells[i].Substring(0, 10).ToString( 'dd/mm/yyyy'));
                            // display the correct format
                        }
                   }
               }
            }
}

Shouldn't it be:
strt = DateTime.Parse(e.Row.Cells[i].Substring(0, 10).ToString(), "dd/mm/yyyy");

or
strt = DateTime.Parse(e.Row.Cells[i].Substring(0, 10), "dd/mm/yyyy");

Open in new window

?

Dan,

I could not get the SubString to work.  I was able to fix it though.  I used:

strt = DateTime.Parse(e.Row.Cells[i].Text.Trim()).ToShortDateString();
                                
                                e.Row.Cells[i].Text = strt.ToString();

Open in new window

I answered my own question.  Using SubString()would not work.
