How to Converting DateTime to Strings?

The ToString method is used to converting a DateTime object to a string in C#. This method allows you to format the date and time according to specific patterns. 

using System;

class Program
{
    static void Main()
    {
        // Creating a DateTime object representing the current date and time
        DateTime currentDateTime = DateTime.Now;

        // Converting DateTime to strings using various formats
        string shortDate = currentDateTime.ToString("d");
        string longDate = currentDateTime.ToString("D");
        string customFormat = currentDateTime.ToString("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss");

        // Displaying the results
        Console.WriteLine("Short Date Format: " + shortDate);
        Console.WriteLine("Long Date Format: " + longDate);
        Console.WriteLine("Custom Format: " + customFormat);
        Console.ReadKey();
    }
}

In this program, we have created a DateTime object representing the current date and time using DateTime.Now. We then used the ToString method with different format specifiers to convert the DateTime object to strings. 

Output:

Short Date Format: 02-07-2024
Long Date Format: 02 July 2024
Custom Format: 2024-07-02 21:43:12
