Problem with date

Hi group, I have a table where a date like yyyy-mm-dd hh: mm: SS is displayed, and I acquire it with ListBoxPromemoria.CellTextAt (row, i). I should transform this value as a date in the format dd-mm-yyyy. But I can’t, I tried with:

Var date1 As DateTime = ListBox Reminder.CellTextAt (row, i)

messagebox (date1.ToString (Locale.Current, DateTime.FormatStyles.Short, DateTime.FormatStyles.None)).

Surely the error is due to the conversion from string (acquired from the table) to date format. How can I solve?

DateTime.FromString. See examples in the docs.

Further to @JMadrens post

Something like

Var date1 As DateTime = DateTime.FromString( ListBox Reminder.CellTextAt (row, i) )
