How to compare datetime (only dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss tt not whole fff section in datetime) in linq C#?

I want to compare datetime which comes from kendo filter in (DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm:ss tt) format and wanted to compare with my database using linq expression.

IEnumerable<ValidateTaskSummaryDetails> source;
source = source.Where(o => o.TaskStartDate.Value == dtStartDate);

comes from Kendo, the date i have got from kendo is
'10/11/2016 15:34:45'
and the date in my database is
but then also i have got error like
'Enumeration yielded no results'
I think it must take the whole lot of a date with
section also but I don't get that from kendo (i.e. I don't want to get it).

The problem here is When i tried to
compare both dates
which are identical,
But in comparison system compared with
'DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm:ss.fff tt'
now the problem is with
due to this dates are not compared and hence
yielded no result

Do any have any solution?.


both DateTime are same if you remove the millisecond portion.

If so, you can truncate the milliseconds part of your TaskStartDate.Value like;

source = source.Where(o => 
                      o.TaskStartDate.Value.AddTicks(-(o.TaskStartDate.Value.Ticks % TimeSpan.TicksPerSecond)) 
                      == dtStartDate);
