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.


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

Dim MyTime As Date
MyTime = TimeOfDay   ' Return current system time.


Namespace: Microsoft.VisualBasic

Module: DateAndTime

Assembly: Microsoft Visual Basic .NET Runtime (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.
