    You can Format time and date by using following code

    using System;  
    class MainClass {  
      public static void Main() {  
        DateTime dt = DateTime.Now; 
        Console.WriteLine("Time is {0:hh:mm tt}", dt);

    To convert a string-based date to a System .DateTime object, you can use the Convert.ToDateTime(String) method or the DateTime.Parse static methodthod.


    // Date strings are interpreted according to the current culture.
    // If the culture is en-US, this is interpreted as "January 8, 2008",
    // but if the user's computer is fr-FR, this is interpreted as "August 1, 2008"
    string date = "01/08/2008";
    DateTime dt = Convert.ToDateTime(date);            
    Console.WriteLine("Year: {0}, Month: {1}, Day: {2}", dt.Year, dt.Month, dt.Day);
    // Specify exactly how to interpret the string.
    IFormatProvider culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("fr-FR", true);
    // Alternate choice: If the string has been input by an end user, you might 
    // want to format it according to the current culture:
    // IFormatProvider culture = System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture;
    DateTime dt2 = DateTime.Parse(date, culture, System.Globalization.DateTimeStyles.AssumeLocal);
    Console.WriteLine("Year: {0}, Month: {1}, Day {2}", dt2.Year, dt2.Month, dt2.Day);
    /* Output (assuming first culture is en-US and second is fr-FR):
        Year: 2008, Month: 1, Day: 8
        Year: 2008, Month: 8, Day 1

    Console.WriteLine("{0}/{1}/{2}", DateTime.Now.ToString("dd"), DateTime.Now.ToString("MM"), DateTime.Now.ToString("yy"))
