Convert long date to short date
How to convert long date string to short date strong?
Let's say we got a date string "Thursday, December 03, 2015" and want to change it to "12/3/2015."
One easy way of doing it is convert long date string to DateTime type and get short date string from it. Here is a sample code.
string longDate = DateTime.Now.ToLongDateString(); Debug.WriteLine(longDate); //Thursday, December 03, 2015 DateTime dt = Convert.ToDateTime(longDate); string shortDate = dt.ToShortDateString(); Debug.WriteLine(shortDate); //12/3/2015
