TimeOfDay Property 

Returns or sets a Date value containing the current time of day according to your system.


Public Property TimeOfDay() As DateTime

The Date data type includes date components. When returning the system time, TimeOfDay sets these all to 1, so the returned value represents the first day of the year 1. When setting the system time, TimeOfDay ignores the date components.

To access the current system time as a String, use the TimeString Property.

To get or set the current system date, use the Today Property.

Security noteSecurity Note

Setting the system date or time requires unmanaged code permission, which might affect its execution in partial-trust situations. For more information, see SecurityPermission and Code Access Permissions.

This example uses the TimeOfDay property to return the current system time.

Dim currentTime As Date
currentTime = TimeOfDay

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualBasic

Module: DateAndTime

Assembly: Visual Basic Runtime Library (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)

Because TimeOfDay is a member of a module, rather than of a class, you do not need to create an object on which to access TimeOfDay.

You can get, but not set, the current time of day using the TimeOfDay property.
