DateTime.ToString Method

DateTime.ToString Method.

It’s always good to remember what a useful override of the ToString() method on any object can do. Perfect example is C# DateTime whose ToString() method can take parameters that determine the formatting of the returned value.

Examples for DateTime’s .ToString(“format“) method include the following (where format is replaced by the coding value assigned):

d :08/17/2000
