Changing the DateTime textbox to UK Date Format

January 22, 2013

Last week on Friday, as well as making the JQuery DatePicker changes to the UK Date Format, I had made all the significant changes to the text box fields displaying the Date Time including date range validation which I can write on a later post. Here are the details of the changes:-

System.Globalization.CultureInfo provider = System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture;
provider = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo(“en-GB”);

txtStartTime.Text = Convert.ToDateTime(selectedSubscription.ValidFrom, provider).ToString(“dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm”, provider);


Notice here that I have added the date time format on the first parameter in ToString() with “dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm with provider set to en-GB for the UK date format.

You can customise this to anything you want for the date time field parameter.

If you don’t include dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm, it will set to the standard US date time format, which if you leave this out for any text field. So make sure you do this for all.
