Using
DateTime.Parse("15:00")
will pass Today's date + 15:00 into DB and become

21/09/2004 03:00:00 PM

=================

If I only want to pass the TIME (15:00) into db and become

03:00:00 PM

in the DB...

how can I parse?

Thanks.

Hi,
you can get is as string with this
DateTime.Parse("15:00").ToString("t")
or
DateTime.Parse("15:00").ToShortTimeString()

My code:
lst.setSentTime(DateTime.Parse(st.Text).ToLongTimeString());      

But has the following errors:
=========================
error CS1502:  lst.setSentTime(System.DateTime)' has some invalid arguments
error CS1503: Argument '1': cannot convert from 'string' to 'System.DateTime'


why?
Thanks.

that is because you design the field of the database to be datetime and this contains date and time
if you want to log just the time - redesign it as string
