Hello is there an easy way to convert the current time to seconds in vb.net?  For example if the time was 2:30 pm the seconds would be 52200, i can do this easly with a few calculations using military time in vb.net, I was just wondering if there is a simple function i can use?

Yep - this is simple -

Dim intTotalSeconds as Integer
intTotalSeconds = DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay.TotalSeconds

That's it!
