Try this
Dim m = alarmDate.Value.Month.ToString()
Dim len = m.length
if(len==1)
m="0" & m 'concatenate zero
else
'do nothing

if this works do the same for day value also

it works now. But if a date ar ex 14 it will be 014 and i don't want it to be so. I change == in the if(len==1) to if (len = 1) because the program gave me an error.  Expression expected on == is that why i get 014 instead of 14 if a number are below 10 the funktion works fine.

Did you check the code by executing it? coz it will concatenate "0" for the value other than 1 to 9 as the length it becomes more than 1.

As you said == is not the problem i guess.
