Method 1

var userdateformat = DateTime.ParseExact("20101020", "yyyyMMdd", System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture);

Modify as you want to modify.

Method 2

var result = DateTime.ParseExact("20100102", "yyyyMMdd", System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture);

Modify as needed.

Method 3

IFormatProvider culture = new CultureInfo("en-EN", false); // use your culture info
DateTime dt = DateTime.ParseExact(myDateTimeString, "yyyyMMdd", culture, DateTimeStyles.NoCurrentDateDefault);

yyyyMMdd is input format here.

And then if you wish convert it to string:

String output = String.Format("{0:dd/MM/yyyy}", dt);

Method 4

You can use DateTime.ParseExact method

Method 5

string strStartDateMain = "20100102";
string strStartDateFinal = new DateTime(Convert.ToInt32strStartDateMain.Substring(0, 4)), Convert.ToInt32(strStartDateMain.Substring(4, 2)), Convert.ToInt32(strStartDateMain.Substring(6))).ToString("dd/MM/yyyy");
