Hi, I'm using VS2012.
Is there a way to validate user's date input in the gridview (it's the last column).  There 6 columns, the first is the Edit(auto generated) and the last one is date time type with display format to show only short date.  The grid is datagind,    Is there a way to validate when user modify the date/time column, only date is modified, when they click the Update button?  
The problem is if I convert it to Template field then I lose the ability to format the dispaly to only short date, it would display the entire date and time.  It's okay if I can find a regular expression that does the job but i can't find one that would validate mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss AM/PM.

Thank you

You can specify format right in Eval expression:  Text='<%# Eval("yourDateColumn", "{0:d}") %>'
Or else specify DataFormatString="{0:d}"
make sure ApplyFormatInEditMode = True

Hi buddy,

For bounding columns, try this code snippet:

var dataTable = new DataTable();
dataTable.Columns.Add("BDate", typeof(DateTime));
dataGridView1.DataSource = dataTable;

Open in new window


Cheers

I want to validate the data that users enter, not when data is binding.  Thank you,
