How can I show the current time (including milliseconds) in VBScript?  

I know how to show the current time using "date" and "FormatDateTime," but not to the granularity of milliseconds.

you can retrive it like this:
(cint(timer*100)/100)
I'v never used VBScript but:
time$ & "." & (cint(timer*100) mod 100)
should return
"hh:mm:ss.ms"
in reg VB

No point in showing time to mS resolution as internal timer tick is only 18.2Hz or about 55mS. You can show as many decimal places to the right of the seconds as you want, only the first two will be significant.

my sugestion only is to show it to 2 decimal places. but you could show it to more or less as you see fit by just adding or removing a '0' to both 100's.
