Default modify date column

If you have a date column in your gridview that displays like:
9/27/2011 9:00:35 AM

And would rather have it displayed like in the MM-DD-YYYY format instead, how do you set that up in the grid so that displays in the format that you want it to.

Thanks once again

Sure, if you're using a BoundField, simply do as follows:
<asp:boundfield datafield="Your_Date_Column" dataformatstring="{0:MMMM d, yyyy}" htmlencode="false" /> Just make sure you set the HtmlEncode attribute to False or it won't work.
