  • Hi Mohammad,

    You can use DateTieme.ToString to custom time format like this:

            Dim dateString As Date = "8:30:52 PM"
            Dim convertedTime As String
            convertedTime = dateString.ToString("hh:mm:ss") '08:30:52
            convertedTime = dateString.ToString("h:mm:ss") '8:30:52
            convertedTime = dateString.ToString("H:mm:ss") '20:30:52

    Hope this helps.
