DateTime and ParseExact not working properly

I am using AJAX and sending certain data:

var eventtype = parseInt(record.<%= CEO.FieldEvaluator.GetEvaluatorByDId("EVENT_TYPE_ID").GetFieldDataFieldId()%>); var begindate = parseInt(record.<%= CEO.FieldEvaluator.GetEvaluatorByDId("BeginDate").GetFieldDataFieldId()%>); var enddate = parseInt(record.<%= CEO.FieldEvaluator.GetEvaluatorByDId("EndDate").GetFieldDataFieldId()%>); $.ajax({ type: "POST", url: "Data.aspx/CheckInsertRecord", data: "{EventType:'" + eventtype + "',BeginDate:'" + begindate + "'," + "EndDate:'" + enddate+"' }", contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8", dataType: "json", success: function (msg) { alert(msg.d); } });

In the code behind:

CultureInfo provider = CultureInfo.InvariantCulture; DateTime bd = DateTime.ParseExact(BeginDate,"MM/DD/YYYY", provider); DateTime ed = DateTime.ParseExact(EndDate, "MM/DD/YYYY", provider);

However when I run it i get an error saying

"String was not recognized as a valid Datetime"

Can u please help me in getting rid of this.

Or is there any other way to convert string to a DateTime?

-------------Problems Reply------------

In .NET, a correct custom date/time format string for a date string like "01/01/2011" is "MM/dd/yyyy"


DateTime bd = DateTime.ParseExact(BeginDate,"MM/dd/yyyy", provider);
DateTime ed = DateTime.ParseExact(EndDate, "MM/dd/yyyy", provider);


DateTime bd = DateTime.ParseExact(BeginDate,"M/d/yyyy", provider);
DateTime ed = DateTime.ParseExact(EndDate, "M/d/yyyy", provider);
