How Convert Datetime (YYYY/MM/dd HH:mm:ss) To yyyy-MM-dd



How do you write a date value to an XMLElement in .NET 3.5 XMLDocument object. 


 I am using the following:


DateTime orderDate = new DateTime();
orderDate = DateTime.Now; // 2010-08-24 16:45:46

string st = XmlConvert.ToString(orderDate, "yyyy-MM-dd");     // st="2010-08-24"
DateTime dt2 = XmlConvert.ToDateTime (st, "yyyy-MM-dd");   // dt2 = "2010-08-24 00:00:00"

I would like to remove the time section "00:00:00". I only need to write a date in the XML file with the following format :


Order date is defined like this in the xsd file : <xs:element name="OrderDate" type="xs:date"/>


Thanks for your support.

Create COM object from ProgID in a separate domain

Hi, How should I create COM object from ProgID in a separate app. domain? After I created corresponding Type object by means of Type.GetTypeFromProgID, I cannot use neither Activator.CreateInstance nor <MySeparateAppDomain>.CreateInstance because both require assembly name as one of the arguments... but as I said before I have no RCW assembly - just a ProgID. Those Activator.CreateInstance overloads which have argument of AppDomain type do not accept argument of Type type, only argument "assembly name" (of String type). And neither of <MySeparateAppDomain>.CreateInstance overloads accept argument of Type type (all require assembly name and type name). Any ideas?!

Proxy failed to create remote object on the server

Hi, I am using .net remoting for inter-process communication between two processes on the same machine 1.   The first process is one of the Office application: Ecxel /   Word /   PP 2.   The other process is another application that interacts with one of the above. For that it needs office application object. For example: Excel The solution is comprised with 3 projects: Project #1: The remote object is a simple Called RemoteOfficeApplication – that simply wraps the required application object (Word / Excel / PP).   Project #2: The Server is a simple Office add-in, written with a Visual Studio Extensibility -> Shared project. This add-in is instantiated whenever Excel is lunched. This project reference project #1. Code: var channel = new TcpChannel (5003); ChannelServices.RegisterChannel(channel,true ); RemotingConfiguration.RegisterWellKnownServiceType( typeof (RemoteOfficeApplication.RemoteOfficeApplication ), “AppObj”, WellKnownObjectMode .Singleton);   Project #3: The Client is the process that requires the application object. This project also reference project #1. Code:   //Get Remote object proxy object remoteAppObject = Activator.GetObject(typeof(RemoteOfficeApplication.RemoteOfficeApplication), “tcp://localhost:5003/AppObj" ); //Cast the proxy var r

How to create an extremely large array/object (> 2 GB) without using jagged arrays ?

Hello,I had implemented a matrix scaling algorithm in Java (64-bit) for a university project and have now implemented the code in C# with .NET 3.5 64-bit. One of the operations I did in Java was creating a rectangular array with double[][] = ... (in C# this is a jagged array!) to store a symmetric matrix which is used as input for the algorithm. Since I was using matrices with n up to 30720, memory usage for the single matrix object was around 8 GB in it's maximum and with matrix multiplication around 20 GB.So... now I implemented this in C# and I am shocked to see that double[,] (rectangular arrays) can only be 2 GB in size even on 64-bit! That means that for matrices with n larger than ~15000 I will get OutOfMemory Exceptions although there is a huge amount of free memory (I have two quad core systems with 12 GB and 24 GB Ram). When I use jagged arrays in C# (i.e. double[][]) I can create larger matrices. That is because I have one small array with the size of the row number (i.e. n) and then for each row an array of size n, but they are all single objects so I don't reach the 2 GB per object limit. The problem with jagged arrays is that they are horribly slow for matrice calculations compared to rectangular arrays and even slower compared to single dimension arrays.Actually I intended to rewrite my code and simulate the matrices in single arrays (see sample code below) bec

"Out-of-Range" Error When Passing DateTime (DD/MM/YYYY) into Stored Procedure

Hi everybody, I hope some of you will be able to help me regarding this datetime problem. The query in the stored procedure doesn't accept DD/MM/YYYY format, although all dates are being saved in the format of DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm:ss. Example of query that throws the error: @sDate = '31/8/2010' @eDate = '1/9/2010' SELECT * FROM tb_Schedule where scheduledate >= @sDate and scheduledate <= @eDate  Error:  The conversion of a char data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range datetime value FYI, the SQL Server 2005 is defaulted to British English(2057)for all logins and the DB server itself and my server Regional and Language is set to English (United Kingdom). Any help will be appreciated. Thank you very much.

Unable to Create Object Variable for Linq Data Class


For some unknown reason I suddenly am unable to create an object variable for a Linq Data Class. If I create a new project and try the process again with the same database everything works as advertized.

The code I am using is Dim db As New RoggDataContext  which gives me an error on the object variable "db": Overload resolution failed because no accessibility 'NEW'  accepts this number of arguments.

I have looked inside every file in the Web Project like the web config to check the connection string, gobal, and designer.vb looking for any errors whit no JOY.  I also tried to create a new form and code behind with a button and received the same error.

This is mind blowing because as I already stated, I can create a new Web Site and the problem goes away.

Any help is appreciated!



Xml deserialization of a Nullable DateTime object


Morning, we've had this a lot but the answers I've found do not appear to work.


C# 3.0, .Net 3.5, XML Serialization into a nullable DateTime property does not work with an empty string.  The exception is thrown before the internals of the property, when the XmlSerializer attempts to use DateTime.ParseExact (when I use a DataType="date" value) and just complains that it is not a valid DateTime format when I do not.

A few of the various combinations of signature that I have used are below but am I fundamentally wrong that empty strings should be classed as null values?  I bet at the end of this the conclusion will be: "if you have a value then pass a populated element in the xml, if you don't then don't pass that element at all" or "if you have no value you can still send the element so long as it has the xsi:nil attribute" .

A few combinations:


DateTime Foo {get; set;}



DateTime? Foo {get; set;}


[XmlElement("foo", DataTime="date")] // yes I just want the date part

DateTime? Foo {get; set;}


[XmlElement("foo", IsNullable=true)] // I believe Bet that this onl
