DateTime data in a C# 2005 Masked Text Box

I had some problems getting DateTime information to display correctly in a Masked TextBox. Each time I assigned DateTime.ToShortDateString to the masked text box it would drop the leading zeros. For example the date 02/04/2007 would show up in the masked text box as 24/20/07 . The format of the ToShortDateString’s output was all wrong for what I needed. After some playing around with it this is the solution that I came up with after reading and playing with the program.

DateTimeFormatInfo myDTFI = new CultureInfo( “en-US”, false ).DateTimeFormat;
myDTFI.ShortDatePattern = “MMddyyyy”;
txtFutureDate.Text = DateTime.Now.ToString(myDTFI.ShortDatePattern);

Silly Me:
Much easier to use the following code. It is much more simplified.

txtFutureDate.Text = String.Format(“{0:MMddyyyy}”, DateTime.Now);
