DateAndTime.TimeOfDay Property

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

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)

public static DateTime TimeOfDay { get; set; }

Property Value

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

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
