ToDateTime Method (Object)

Convert.ToDateTime Method (Object)

 

Converts the value of the specified object to a DateTime object.

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

static member ToDateTime : 
        value:Object -> DateTime

Parameters

value
Type: System.Object

An object that implements the IConvertible interface, or null.

Return Value

Type: System.DateTime

The date and time equivalent of the value of value, or a date and time equivalent of DateTime.MinValue if value is null.

Exception Condition
FormatException

value is not a valid date and time value.

InvalidCastException

value does not implement the IConvertible interface.

-or-

The conversion is not supported.

For the conversion to succeed, the runtime type of the value parameter must be either a DateTime or a String, or value must be null. Otherwise, the method throws an InvalidCastException. In addition, if value is a string, it must contain a valid representation of a date and time value in the current culture or a FormatException is thrown.

The return value is the result of invoking the IConvertible.ToDateTime method of the underlying type of value.

The following example calls the ToDateTime(Object) method with a variety of Object variables.
