To filter information using two datatimepickers and datagridview. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I've been struggling trying to filter between two dates and also the time from SQL server 2012.

     Using sqlCon = Connection()
    Dim dt As New DataTable
    Dim query As String = "select * from Tblinvoices where saledate >= @saledateand1 saledate <= @saledate2 order by saledate DESC"
      Dim cmd As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand
      cmd.CommandText = query
      cmd.Connection = sqlCon
      cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text
      cmd.CommandTimeout = 90
     cmd.Parameters.Add("@saledate1", SqlDbType.Datetime).Value = dtsaledate1.Text
    cmd.Parameters.Add("@saledate2", SqlDbType.Datetime).Value = dtsaledate2.Text
             Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter
            da.SelectCommand = cmd
            datalistado.DataSource = dt
     End Using

    When I use the code above I only get the date on the datagridview but since I have saved date and time in the DB it does not display anything. By date and time I mean like this 8/11/2008 3:32 PM

    Is it possible to filter datetime from SQL server into the datagridview, I don't want only the date, I honestly need date and time and I will really appreciate some help.

  • Use BETWEEN e.g.

    Public Function BetweenTwoDates(ByVal pStartDate As DateTime, pEndDate As DateTime) As DataTable
        Dim dt As New DataTable
        Using cn As New SqlConnection With {.ConnectionString = "Data Source=KARENS-PC;Initial Catalog=ForumExamples;Integrated Security=True"}
            Using cmd As New SqlCommand With {.Connection = cn}
                cmd.CommandText = "SELECT id,StartDate,EndDate FROM BetweenDates WHERE StartDate BETWEEN @StartDate AND @EndDate"
                cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@StartDate", pStartDate)
                cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@EndDate", pEndDate)
            End Using
        End Using
        Return dt
    End Function

    Call (DataOperations in this case is a class that contains the method above, you could have the method above directly in your form, I like to use classes)

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim ops As New DataOperations
        Dim dt As DataTable = ops.BetweenTwoDates(#2017-09-01 04:37:42#, #2017-09-04 04:37:42#)
    End Sub

    I hard coded dates, you would use your DateTimePickers in place of the hard coded values e.g. SomeDataTimePicker.Value.

    Query ran in SQL-Server Management Studio.

  • Hi lvanoskie,

    Based on your description, I think you need to set DateTimePicker's format, so it can work fine. Please refer to the code below.

       Private Sub Form3_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
            DateTimePicker1.Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Custom
            DateTimePicker1.CustomFormat = "dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm:ss"
            DateTimePicker2.Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Custom
            DateTimePicker2.CustomFormat = "dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm:ss"
        End Sub
        Private Sub fun()
            Dim dt As New DataTable
            Dim conn As New SqlConnection("Data Source=(LocalDB)\MSSQLLocalDB;AttachDbFilename=D:\C# and VB Support\Example(VB)\Demo\Data3.mdf;Integrated Security=True")
            Dim sql As String = "Select * from Test10 where BirthDate between @BirthDate1 and @BirthDate2"
            Dim sql1 As String = "Select * from Test10 where BirthDate > @BirthDate1 and BirthDate < @BirthDate2"
            Dim cmd As New SqlCommand(sql, conn)
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@BirthDate1", DateTimePicker1.Text.ToString())
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@BirthDate2", DateTimePicker2.Text.ToString())
            Dim adapter = New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
            DataGridView1.DataSource = dt
        End Sub
        Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        End Sub
