Display datetime according to timezone?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

When a post is made to the site/database, it's made as Universal Time.  A user can set the site's default timezone from a dropdown menu in the admin area, which saves the selected timezone to a database table (table: DefaultTimezone, column: Timezone).  Now, how can I adjust the following code to display the datetime according to the correct timezone, that was set in the database? So if the Timezone column has "US Eastern Standard Time" in it, it would display the published datetime in that format.

<%#Eval("Published", "{0:MMM dd, yyyy - h:mm tt}") %>

want to display 24 hours time and date with datatype Datetime (Not String) in SSRS


Hi All,

I want to display 24 hours time and date in SSRS & for that I am using Format(now,"MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss") but I am using this expression in Parameter, where I need to define datatype of that parameter as DateTime, not string. For Expression Format(now,"MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss"), If I use DateTime datatype, It is showing error but working with String datatype.

For example:

I have parameter To Date  and value of this parameter should be 10/11/2010 13:09:16 (To Date: 10/11/2010 23:09:16) , not in AP or PM format and datatype of this parameter, want to keep DateTime that I can select value from Calender.

Please suggest me how I can achieve this?. I don't want to do it in stored Procedure side, want to do it in report side.

Thanks Shiven:)

divs do not display side by side


I have two divs. I want them to display side by side, on the same row. Using display:inline-block I can do that. But as soon as I position some text in the bottom right corner of div1, the two divs do not have the same vertical position. They are side by side, but the 2nd div starts at the vertical position of the positioned text in the 1st div.   Why would it do that?  Both Chrome and IE8 render it the same way.

( I am doing the nesting of the divs on the left side so that I can position absolutely within a div and not the page. I can't get text to position in the lower right corner of a div any other way. )

Can't display an image from the database



My database has a products table that has images stored in a varbinary(MAX) column.

I'm trying to display product information in a repeater and trying to display the images as well by using a GenericHandler class but I can't get the image to show up in my page.

Here is my Handler.ashx class:

        Dim stream As Stream = Nothing
        If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(context.Request.QueryString("id")) Then
            id = context.Request.QueryString("id")
            stream = GetImage(id)
        End If

        Const buffersize As Integer = 1024 * 16
        Dim buffer(buffersize) As Byte
        'byte[] buffer = new byte[buffersize];
        Dim count As Integer = stream.Read(buffer, 0, buffersize)

        While count > 0
            context.Response.OutputStream.Write(buffer, 0, count)
            count = stream.Read(buffer, 0, buffersize)
        End While
