asp Label id=Label1 runat=server Text="<% =DateTime.Now.ToString() %>"

Hi Experts

I come from an ASP background

How can I do this without writing in the code-behind or creating a function. i want to be able to do a response.write type thing.

<asp:Label id="Label1" runat="server" Text="<% =DateTime.Now.ToString() %>" />

you can also try set the label's text at Page_Load event, like:

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Label1.Text = DateTime.Now.ToString()
    End Sub

<asp:Label ID="Label1" Runat="server"><%=Date.Now%></asp:Label>
<asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" ><%=DateTime.Now%></asp:Label>
