I am sending in a string in dd/MM/yyyy format, which is then being parsed into lv-LV culture as set per the web.config globalization setting.I am then comparing the date to DateTime.Now to see if it is in the past.The problem is, DateTime.Parse converts my string to dd.MM.yyyy format, but DateTime.Now has MM.dd.yyyy format, so the comparison always fails.Why would DateTime.Now be different to the output from DateTime.Parse, on the same thread culture?(Update) This is the code I am using:InputText contains input from a form in DD.MM.YYYY format
DateTime date = DateTime.Parse(InputText, CultureInfo.CurrentCulture); // Check it's not in the past this.IsValid = (date.CompareTo(DateTime.Now) > 0);
[DateTime.Now] in this context is in MM.DD.YYYY format using lv-LV cultureInfo [date] is in DD.MM.YYYY format after the DateTime.Parse
I'm generating reports with a table, these reports are between some dates, the query is working, the thing is that the client does not want to have to type the date as for instance, reporte between 2010-10-01 and 2010-10-31. Since he only wants to get monthly reports, he wants to sleect just month and year. I created 2 dropdownlist one with month and another with year. I don't know if it is the best approach but what I want to do is that when the client seleces january 2010 automatically passes to 2 labels like this: 2010-01-01 and 2010-01-31 So then my query get these dates in the between fields.
This might be a very simple question to the .NET guru's out here. I have a datetime textbox which is supposed to display only date and NOT time. How can I remove the time before I display it on my UI. I understand that this can be achieved by making changes either at the Db end or at the code behind.
dim str as String = textbox1.text ' when date is in this format dd/MM/yyyy dim date_time as Datetime = Date.ParseExact( str , "dd/MM/yyyy" , nothing)
it works fine but when the user but the date like this 9/9/2010 it gives error because the format is set "dd/MM/yyyy" and given date format is "d/M/yyyy" or it could be "dd/M/yyyy" what could be the solution of this problem?
how can i format the dataset column of datetime to date only? i only wan to show the date only without any specific format. example, 1/25/2010 12:00:00 AM to 1/25/2010, without doing a .ToString('M/d/yyyy'). because im following the culture set in the web.config.
I want to save the current date to a table in database. The coloumn type is declared as DateTime in the table, as i may have to select rows between two dates. So i can't change the format by converting it to string variable. I want the DateTime.Date variable to have dd/MMM/yyyy hh:mm tt format instead of MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss tt format.
c# - How to Grab Date Only from a Variable of Type DateTime
DataTable tempTable = new DataTable; tempTable = getCustomerTable(); In this case, tempTable will have a table (named CustomerInvoice) which has 5 columns. The 3rd column is named DueDate. I print to a listview as following:
I prefer to solve this problem at application rather than db level. NOTE: DueDate in database is of type datetime. I'm coding in C# interacting with Sql-Server. I hope my question is clear enough.
I have this example and it gives me exception "Conversion from string x to dateTime is invalid"
here is my method to validate Datetime.
Example Date string : "27/03/1985"
Public Function validateDateColumn(ByRef FieldName As String) As Boolean
Try If IsDate(FieldName) Then Dim actualDate As DateTime = CDate(FieldName) Dim DtLicExp As DateTime = CDate(actualDate.ToString("d", Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture)) FieldName = DtLicExp.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy") Return True End If Catch ex As Exception 'FieldName &= "Format must be MM/dd/yyyy" Return False End Try End Function
validate this date string formate to datetime.
I want to convert this date "27/03/1985" to datetime.
I am thinking to have a standardize date format for all the Date Time in the system when display to user and also for user input.For example YYYY-mm-DD HH:mm:ss .Does the Standardize date format for date timewill cause error by different clent local pc date format?The way i capture the datetime format from user input is :
dim dteDateTime as DateTime dteDateTime=txtDateTime.tex
If the above format is not correct?Does anyone has idea on the correct way to standarize the Date Time format for all the ASP.NET system?
I'm using VS 2005 and SQL SERVER 2005,now i have a table with only two columns (their types: DateTime and SmallDateTime)
i key in some new records.Now I want to use GridView to retrieve that table, and use Calendar.SelectedDate as a parameter used in WHERE statement,I press "Test Query" and pop out a window "Parameter Values Editor",
here comes the problem.. how come the "DbType" is always 'Date'?After i click the list and select 'DateTime', but next time it will recover back to 'Date'I have to go to the source code find the "Dbtype" and change from "Date" to "DateTime" manually EVERYTIME~
I have an application that uses a time date picker control to display a date from a sql (sql 2000) table. Casting from the table to the control works fine, but writing a selected date from the control back to the database does not, I was under the impression that a datatype 'date' in VB would be compatible with SQL datetime datatime, and obviously it is from sql to vb as the date is correctly displayed in the control reading from the table. How do I need to convert the value from the date time picker control to write into sql ?
