Default Getting tomorrow's date?


I'm a C# newbie using VS.NET 2005. I'm having trouble getting a string representation of a date and using addition in DateTime objects to get tomorrow's date.

I have two ways of acquiring the current date. I use both:

DateTime dtNow = DateTime.Now;
string strDateNow = dtNow.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy");

string dateCal2 = this.monthCalendar1.SelectionStart.ToString();
What's the easiest way to acquire the date for tomorrow? I can't seem to find any applicable function in the SDK and I'd hate to re-invent the wheel by creating an entire date class. Thanks in advance!

Hi Panvuin,

Take a look at the DateTime structure:


It has a number of Add* methods, like AddDays. So this:

DateTime tomorrow = DateTime.Now.AddDays(1);

returns tomorrow's date. This works, because Now itself is a DateTime, so it has an AddDays method...
