    how do I format datetime in razor?

    I've searched and I've tried many combinations to no avail. The p#date displays

    4/7/2011 12:00:00 AM 

    using my code below :

     

    <ul>
       @{
    foreach
     (var article in @month.Descendants("NewsArticle").Where("Level == 5"))    {        <li>            <h4>@article.ArticleTitle</h4>           <p id="date">
    @{
               string date = article.ArticleDate.ToString();              library.FormatDateTime(@date, "dd/MM/yyyy");
    }
    </p>             <p>@article.ArticleIntro</p>             <a href="library.NiceUrl(@article.Id)">Read more...</a>          </li>        }
    }
    </ul>

    I would like to make it display just the dd/MM/yyyy format.

     

    Cheers

    Use this:

    <p id="date">@article.ArticleDate.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy")</p>

    Don't forget: you can use anything that is in the C# language already. Basically, Razor is C# mixed with HTML and some @ signs.. :)

    Hi,

    I got this I want to format with Razor - how to?

    @{
            //For each item node we can then ouput what we want
            foreach (XmlNode node in rssItems)
            {
             
             
             
                <li>
                    <div class="date">@node["pubDate"].InnerText</div>
                    <a href="@node["link"].InnerText">@node["title"].InnerText<span>></span></a>
                </li>
            }
        }

    hmmmm i think with dot notation it should work. Have to look like this:

    @node.link or @node.title

    or test out

    @node.GetProperty("link").value  or @node.GetProperty("title").value

    just test it out. Some of this should do the trick

    Hi Anders,

    You should use @node.Link, @node.Title etc. The first letter should always be capitalized, unless you want recursive, then you need to prefix with "_"

    You can have a look at the the razor "cheat sheet" for more info : http://our.umbraco.org/projects/developer-tools/razor-dynamicnode-cheat-sheet

    Cheers,

    Michael.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I get the right data out, but I need to format it corret.

    I would like to do something like this

    @node["pubDate"].InnerText.ToString("dd.MM.yyyy")

    Hi Anders,

    I'm not 100% sure, but one of the following should work:

    @node["pubDate"].Value.ToString("dd.MM.yyyy")

    or

    @node.PubDate.ToString("dd.MM.yyyy")

    Cheers,

    Michael.

    I was helping Anders out on Friday and helped him write a Razor snippet that outputs items from a remote XML source such as an RSS feed, so it's more custom .NET Razor code rather than Umbraco related.
    The RSS item has an XML Node called PubDate that uses a date format such as Thu, 17 Nov 2011 21:37:00 +0100

    Anders to convert this into your own custom date time format you can use the following, which I found from this stackOverflow post
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/266448/format-rss-pubdate-as-net-datetime

    string orig ="Wed, 29 Oct 2008 14:14:48 +0000";
    string newstring =String.Format("{0:MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm tt}",DateTime.Parse(orig.Remove(orig.IndexOf(" +"))));

    I hope this helps Anders.
    Warren

    Hey Warren,

    Sorry but I still don't get it.

    I think I'll go back to XSLT for now - i got a deadline on the site :(

    Hi,

    Any idea why this fails to load the razor script in Umbraco 4.7.0? I just want to output the current year in the copyright statement:-

                <section id="copyright">
                    Copyright © 
    <umbraco:Macro runat="server" language="cshtml">
    @date.ToString("yyyy");

    String to Datetime...

    string iDate = "05/05/2005";
    DateTime oDate = Convert.ToDateTime(iDate);

    DateTime.Parse()

    string iDate = "2005-05-05";
    DateTime oDate = DateTime.Parse(iDate);
    
    string iString = "2005-05-05 22:12 PM";
    DateTime oDate = DateTime.ParseExact(iString, "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm tt",null);

    Going back to Anders' problem, I'm using ver similar code to grab a load of stuff from an external rss feed and then render on my site. Everything works fine, but the date is not in a nice format (standard RSS output).

    I would like to get the solution Warren provided to work, but I'm not sure how to assign my date to the newstring variable that is highlighted in the example.

    @foreach (DataRow entry in entries.Tables["item"].Rows)
          {
           
            if (itemCounter < maxItems)
            {

    So here I would like to switch out the literal string from the example and replace with my @entry["pubDate"] value.

            string orig = "Wed, 29 Oct 2008 14:14:48 +0000";

    Psuedo code would be something like

            string orig = @entry["pubDate"];

    string orig = "Wed, 29 Oct 2008 14:14:48 +0000";        
    string newstring = String.Format("{0:MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm tt}",DateTime.Parse(orig.Remove(orig.IndexOf(" +"))));
           
             <div style="border-bottom: 1px dashed #ccc; display: block; margin: 0px 0px 30px 0px;">
          <h2 style="margin-bottom: 10px;">@entry["title"]</h2>
               <p><em class="itemdate">@entry["pubDate"]</em></p>
               <p>@Library.Truncate(Library.StripHtml((string) entry["description"]), 250)</p>
               <p style="text-align: right;"><a href="@entry["link"]">Read More</a></p>
              </div>
              itemCounter++;
            }
            else
            {
              break;
            }
          }

    Then I could use the newstring value instead of entry["pubDate"].. Any help with syntax would be much appreciated. Razor hurts my brain..

     

    Thanks,

     

    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    Have you tried something like this, perhaps it works.

    <p><em class="itemdate">@entry["pubDate"].ToString("dd MM yyyy")</em></p>

    I haven't tested it myself, but hope this helps,

    /Dennis

    Tried that and variations on that, but no success.

    Got it!

            string myDate = (string)entry["pubDate"];
            string newDate = String.Format("{0:ddd, dd MMMM yyyy}",DateTime.Parse(myDate.Remove(myDate.IndexOf(" +"))));

    The field needed to be converted into a string for the variable to accept it.
