public static string setDateDisplayFormat(DateTime _date)
strCulture = System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.To String();
strShortDateFormat = "dd/MM/yyyy";
return (_date.ToString().Length>0?DateTime.Parse(_date.To String(),
    System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCul ture(strCulture).DateTimeFormat).ToString(strShort DateFormat):"");
