I want to filter datagridview between two datetimepicker.
I'm using c# and MySQL .

What I have tried:

private void ShowButton (object sender, EventArgs e)
          String constring ="datasource=;port=;username;password=";
          using (var conn = new MySqlConnection(constring))

                      BindingSource bs = new BindingSource();

                      bs.DataSource = dataGridView1.DataSource;

                      bs.Filter = "Convert(Date,'System.String') Between  '%" + dateTimePicker1.Text + "%' AND '%" + dateTimePicker2.Text + "%'  ";
            dataGridView1.DataSource = bs;

Why not filter it before you populate the dataGridView? What query are you using to populate the DGV?

I asked "What query are you using to populate the DGV". This button is using the existing DataSource for the DGV. How was that datasource populated?

I'm sorry for my miss understand I used Datagridview Tasks to choose data Source !!and it populate its data automatically.

Your filter needs to conform to the syntax described in the remarks of the DataColumn.Expression property:
Expression property | Microsoft Docs[^]

bs.Filter = string.Format("Date Between #{0:yyyy/MM/dd}# And #{1:yyyy/MM/dd}#", dateTimePicker1.Value, dateTimePicker2.Value);

Thank you but I tried your code and it showed me this Error Message 'The expression contains unsupported operator 'Between'. !

Well, according to the documentation, it should be supported.

Try using >= and <= instead:
bs.Filter = string.Format("Date >= #{0:yyyy/MM/dd}# And Date <= #{1:yyyy/MM/dd}#", dateTimePicker1.Value, dateTimePicker2.Value);

I tried it , and the message error change to " Column 'Date' not known " !
Richard Deeming 12-Apr-17 14:12pm    
So change the filter to specify the correct column name!
bs.Filter = string.Format("YOUR_COLUMN_NAME_HERE >= #{0:yyyy/MM/dd}# And YOUR_COLUMN_NAME_HERE <= #{1:yyyy/MM/dd}#", dateTimePicker1.Value, dateTimePicker2.Value);
