Greeting,

The DateFormat.ShortDate gives me date like 2/7/2014. Is there anyway to get 02/07/2014?

Thanks.

Use an explicit format specifier:

Dim d As DateTime = DateTime.Now
Dim s As String = d.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy")   ' Case important!

Open in new window


A good resource for format specifiers is here:  http://blog.stevex.net/string-formatting-in-csharp/
