DateTime.Date Property

Gets the date component of this instance.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public DateTime Date { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.DateTime
A new DateTime with the same date as this instance, and the time value set to 12:00:00 midnight (00:00:00).

The following example uses the Date property to extract the date component of a DateTime value with its time component set to zero (or 0:00:00, or midnight). It also illustrates that, depending on the format string used when displaying the DateTime value, the time component can continue to appear in formatted output.

DateTime date1 = new DateTime(2008, 6, 1, 7, 47, 0);
Console.WriteLine(date1.ToString());

// Get date-only portion of date, without its time.
DateTime dateOnly = date1.Date;
// Display date using short date string.
Console.WriteLine(dateOnly.ToString("d"));
// Display date using 24-hour clock.
Console.WriteLine(dateOnly.ToString("g"));
Console.WriteLine(dateOnly.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm"));   
// The example displays the following output to the console: 
//       6/1/2008 7:47:00 AM 
//       6/1/2008 
//       6/1/2008 12:00 AM 
//       06/01/2008 00:00
