'Declaration
Public Shared ReadOnly Property Today As DateTime

Property Value

Type: System.DateTime
Gets a Date value containing the current date according to your system.

The Date data type includes time components. When returning the system date, Today sets all of these to 0, so the returned value represents midnight (00:00:00). When setting the system date, Today ignores the time components.

To access the current system date as a String, use the DateString property.

To get the current system time, use the TimeOfDay property.

This example uses the Today property to return the current system date.


Dim thisDate As Date
thisDate = Today
