Hi Experts,

I have a date in string format. I want to display it in a date picker control. I am using the following code.

Dim Stk_Date As String = "20140713"
Dim dt As DateTime = DateTime.Parse((Stk_Date).ToString("yyyy-MM-dd"))

I am getting the error  "Unable to cast object of type "System.string" to type "system.IFormatProvider"  "

Thank you.
