I have an xml file that stores subscription data. and a report form that shows the details of the subscription. I am trying to format the date in this style 01/01/2013 but when I try to display the date it does not show the correct value I get 00/01/2013.
 
Here is the code that displays the date.
label6.Text = "Start Date: " + user.StartDate.ToString("mm/dd/yyyy");
And this is what it looks like in the xml.
<StartDate>2013-01-20T00:00:00</StartDate>
And in my model I have....
public DateTime StartDate { get; set; }
 
Thanks in advance.

It';s not odd at all - it is exactly what you asked for: minutes/day/year.
If you want the month on the other hand:
user.StartDate.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy");
Would probably be what you wanted.

Nope it is the .NET Framework going opposite to the gold tradition:
