hi, i want to change my datetime in the grid view to shortdatatype throw data bound any suggestions !!??

1 solution

Yes... so what is the problem ?

void GridView_RowDataBound(object sender, 
  GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
        TextBox tb = e.Row.FindControl("tb") as TextBox;
        tb.Text = DateTime.Parse(DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem,"Date").ToString()).ToShortDateString();

You might change it according to your need. Rather than Parse you might use ParseExact as well if you know the exact format.

Hope you got it. ;) :thumbsup:
