These two lines of vb6 code I am trying to translate to C#:

mskFromDate.Text = Format(Date - TimeSerial((iNumDaysBefore * 24), 0, 0), "Short Date")
    mskToDate.Text = Format(Date + TimeSerial((iNumDaysAfter * 24), 0, 0), "Short Date")

I have this so far. I know it is not right.

var dt = string.Empty;
                dt = Convert.ToString(DateTime.Now.ToOADate() - (NumDaysBefore * 24));
                this.dtFromDate.Text = Convert.ToDateTime(dt).ToShortDateString();

Anybody have thoughts? I can't believe in vb6 they let folks subtract dates and numbers.
