i have 2 questions
1- in the DTPicker control i set format to custom, and custom format to hh:mm:ss but when run the program all things is ok except one thing i want the hours to be from 00 to 23 not from 00 to 12 how can i do that?

2- i want to use the format function in order two represent any number in 4 characters only and leave blank (not 0) in the case of the number is less than 4 characters
e.g.

"1234" => "1234"
"12  " => "  45"  (not "0045")

    Label1.Caption = Format(Now, "Long Time") & vbCrLf & Format(Now, "Medium Time") & vbCrLf & Format(Now, "Short Time") & vbCrLf & Format(Now, "General Date") & vbCrLf & Format(Now, "Long Date") & vbCrLf & Format(Now, "Medium Date") & vbCrLf & Format(Now, "Short Date")
End Sub
