<asp:BoundField DataField="AccountExpirationDate" HeaderText="Expiration Date" HeaderStyle-VerticalAlign="Middle" HeaderStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center" />
In this column, what can I use for DataFormat string so it displays a short date from the binded datatime data, I don't want the time to display.

Also, how can I retrieve from this column when user update the data.  Currently my code below gives me error.
editUser.AccountExpirationDate = Convert.ToDateTime(editRow.Cells[5].Controls[0]);

I'm also attaching a couple of code snipets.  Thank you
