If I am passing a DateTime value as a parameter ... how do I get "MinDate" such that SQL Server (T-SQL) will consume it and JSON will translate it?

In other words, this is what I have been passing:

 ticketList = _esnService.ECIDHDTicketList(userProfile.VendorID,
                    userProfile.PublicAPICompany,
                    "",
                    userProfile.PublicAPIUsername,
                    userProfile.PublicAPIPassword,
                    "",
                    "BB00",
                    "",
                    "",
                    "",
                    "",
                    "",
                    "",
                    "",
                    DateTime.Parse("2009-03-13 22:16:00"),
                    "",
                    true);

Open in new window




Notice this param:

                    DateTime.Parse("2009-03-13 22:16:00"),


I want to do the same thing, but using something more generic, like "MinDate( )" or something or other.  I want to stop hard-coding the string that represents the datetime value.

Have you tried DateTime.Now

It will always fetch the current date and time at the time you request it. Both SQL and javascript should be able to handle it.

If MinDate is always the same date, then simply write a method^

		public DateTime MinDate()
		{
			return (DateTime.Parse("2009-03-13 22:16:00"));
		}

Open in new window


 and call it:

      ...
      "",
      MinDate(),
      "",
     true);

Hi,

If you really want min date for SQL Server you can use: SqlDateTime.MinValue (in System.Data.dll).
Notice that SQL MinDate is different than C# min date. Sql Min Date is 1st January 1753.

Hope this helps!

Regards,
Mishu
