Date Formatting Problem

I am binding dates to a textbox, the date is stored in SQL in a datetime
field. When it gets bound it turns it into a long date (Sunday, Dec. 25
2005), in SQL when viewing the table it views as a shortdate. When
inserted to SQL the datetimepicker format for the date is short. I have
not had a problem with the formatting of a date to a textbox before, but
this time I am using the CurrencyManager to navigate though several
records. This is the code it am using to bind it to the textbox:

txtArchiveDate. DataBindings.Ad d("Text", myDV, "Archive_Da te")
Any suggestions on how to fix this date formatting problem would be

Look at creating a Binding object and then adding that to your
Control's DataBindings

'something like this should work
Dim b As New Binding("Text", myDV, "Archive_Da te")
'then either
AddHandler b.Format, AddressOf ShortDateToLong Date
b.FormatString = "{0:d}"
txtArchiveDate. DataBindings.Ad d(b)

This doesn’t work do to the fact that it is a binding and not a string.
Any other ideas
I even tried Changing the SQL to a nvarchar and it still gives me a long

Hi there, My problem is the following: When I assign a custom formatted Date & Time to a Date variable it loses it’s formatting. Ex. 2005-06-07 15:46 now when I assign this to a variable of type Date or DateTime this becomes 2005/06/07 03:46:00 The same code work flawlessly on various other machines, thus I presume this is settings related. I know that the Time function in VB.NET reads from the system time, which you set in...

I'm storing a date/time into a SQL table of type datetime. I need it to be precise so the value is stored to the 1000th of a second. ie "insert into myTable mydate values ('08/05/2005 2:56:11.987'). This works fine...if you check the value in the table with query analyzer, it shows in there properly. Now, in my app, I'm executing the same query (that I used in QA) and storing tha in a dataview. If I break and watch the program, the...

I have a gridview that's being populated from an access db query. The problem I'm having is that the date/time fields in access that are populating the gridview are showing both date and time, when the field should only be showing one or the other (date or time). Even on the back end of the database where the column properties are, I have chosen the smallest date/time formats. When the aspx page runs, it shows the date and time (ie:in a...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
