Date Parsing C#

January 30, 2012
Here are some Date Parsing tips using C#
DateTime.ParseExact(txtdate.text, "MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm", null); 
You can also use TryParse like so which avoids exceptions being thrown if the date format is incorrect or something: -

DateTime.TryParse(txtdate.text);
A thing that I found frustrating is that if you use the DateTime? as the type used commonly for NHibernate doesn't work so you have to change it to DateTime.
I am still pondering as to why DateTime? is used????? (Yeh more question marks!)
