parsing date string

HI,
i have string in format
dd/mm/yyyyy hh:mm:ss
and giving this as an input to DateTime.Parse gives a string was not
recognized as a valid date time format string error.
how do i make the parse method to accept formating that i need.
if i do console.writeLine DateTime.Now.ToString it gives the format:
YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS

TIA, Z.

I also had a problem with datetime. Searched a lot on the net. Read
through
a lot of articles. But, none was of any help.

At Last i found an MSDN article which explains the datetime class. it
solved
my problem. its a very good article.

The link of this article is
http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframewo...ndTimeFAQ.aspx.

After going through the article i found that the best way is the following
:

Date.Today.ToString( System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture )

Hope it solves all of your problems and help you in understanding the
DateTime class.


Whose problem?
