In C# / .NET it is possible to convert DateTime object to yyyyMMdd formatted string in few ways.

1. DateTime.ToString method example

DateTime now = DateTime.Now;

Console.WriteLine(now.ToString("yyyyMMdd"));

Output:

20190814
Note: DateTime.ToString method uses format description - see for other examples here.

2. String.Format Method example

DateTime now = DateTime.Now;

Console.WriteLine(string.Format("{0:yyyyMMdd}", now));

Output:

20190814
Note: String.Format method uses argument index and format description delimited with ":" character - see for other examples here.
