I may be the last one in the .Net world to find this one out!! Say you wanted to execute the following string format statement:
The result of that format command would be: January 1/1/2007-1/7/2007, 2007. This is obviously not what I was expecting. In order to specify a single character format specifier I have to use the following:
Which results in the following output: January 1-7, 2007 (which is what I wanted).
Notice the use of the % format specifier prior to the single digit day format specifier. That is what I was missing. If you want to know more about how this works check out the documentation here.aspx#UsingSingleSpecifiers).
Develop with passion!
