The DateTime and TimeSpan Types

The DateTime and TimeSpan data types also have built-in methods and properties. These class members allow you to perform three useful tasks:

  • Extract a part of a DateTime (for example, just the year) or convert a TimeSpan to a specific representation (such as the total number of days or total number of minutes).
  • Easily perform date and time calculations.
  • Determine the current date and time and other information (such as the day of the week or whether the date occurs in a leap year).

Example

Module Module1

    Sub Main()

        Dim MyDate As DateTime = DateTime.Now
        Console.WriteLine(MyDate)

        MyDate = MyDate.AddDays(100)
        Dim DateString As String = MyDate.Year.ToString()
        Console.WriteLine(DateString)

        Console.ReadLine()
    End Sub

End Module
