Display time in Label with constant update

14
Hi,

Me to Express vb 2k5
As I could remember there was a funtion in the old VB where simply type "Time" or something then it will show you the real time and second appear on the label.

Is that funtion still available in VB express 2k5, or it had been renamed to something else?

thx

Have you tried something like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. lblTime.Text = Format(Now, "HH:mm:ss")
Hope that this helps.

my idea behind using a clock with ticking second was for the user to know the current time when the program run all will be blackout only the program is visible so i need a clock for my VB project to let users know what time it is.

if your project is web application, you must use script ( javascript , or other ) to show current time.

if your project is window application, you can try by timer controls, place the code to tick event of timer control. set enabled to true and interval to 1000 for timer control's properties.

Well, I know this much.

In VB6, you can make a label showing the time and make it update by it self. In .NET I am still stumped on how to do that correctly.

but the Code for VB6 is

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. lbltime.caption = Time
  2.  
and it's that easy, I wish I knew how to do it in .NET, I'm sure my programming teacher will tell me what the code is, if I get it I will share it with everyone.

Till then,

Check out htis link:

It shows how you can make your own Clock User Control, then you can use in your Windows Form.

The basic idea is simple: "you use a Timer object to refresh a Lable Text property with the current time".

Hope this helps!
