In this article I will explain with an example, how to format DateTime field in dd/MM/yyyy format in ASP.Net Repeater using C# and VB.Net.
HTML Markup
The HTML Markup consists of an ASP.Net Repeater control rendered as an HTML Table with three columns.
The DateTime field value is converted to dd/MM/yyyy by passing an additional parameter i.e. {0:dd/MM/yyyy} in order to format and display the DateTime field value in dd/MM/yyyy format.
<asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server">
        <table cellspacing="0" rules="all" border="1">
                <th scope="col" style="width: 30px">Id</th>
                <th scope="col" style="width: 150px">Name</th>
                <th scope="col" style="width: 150px">Birth Date</th>
            <td><%# Eval("Id")%></td>
            <td><%# Eval("Name")%></td>
            <td><%# Eval("BirthDate", "{0: dd/MM/yyyy}")%></td>
You will need to import the following namespace.
using System.Data;
Imports System.Data
Populating the Repeater control
Inside the Page Load event, the Repeater control is populated with a DataTable containing some dummy records.
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (!this.IsPostBack)
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        dt.Columns.AddRange(new DataColumn[3] { new DataColumn("Id", typeof(int)),
                        new DataColumn("Name", typeof(string)),
                        new DataColumn("BirthDate",typeof(DateTime)) });
        dt.Rows.Add(1, "John Hammond", new DateTime(1975, 12, 1));
        dt.Rows.Add(2, "Mudassar Khan", new DateTime(1985, 2, 25));
        dt.Rows.Add(3, "Suzanne Mathews", new DateTime(1992, 3, 23));
        dt.Rows.Add(4, "Robert Schidner", new DateTime(1982, 1, 15));
        Repeater1.DataSource = dt;
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    If Not Me.IsPostBack Then
        Dim dt As DataTable = New DataTable()
        dt.Columns.AddRange(New DataColumn(2) {New DataColumn("Id", GetType(Integer)), New DataColumn("Name", GetType(String)), New DataColumn("BirthDate", GetType(DateTime))})
        dt.Rows.Add(1, "John Hammond", New DateTime(1975, 12, 1))
        dt.Rows.Add(2, "Mudassar Khan", New DateTime(1985, 2, 25))
        dt.Rows.Add(3, "Suzanne Mathews", New DateTime(1992, 3, 23))
        dt.Rows.Add(4, "Robert Schidner", New DateTime(1982, 1, 15))
        Repeater1.DataSource = dt
    End If
End Sub
