Use:

DateTime.ToString("t")

That will result in 16:35.

It will not include pm, as that information is redundant...  If you need to include pm, then

DateTime.ToString("t") & CStr(IIf(DateTime.Now > 12, "pm", "am"))

You can also use DateTime.ToString("T") to display the seconds as well.

NOTE: DateTime is a DateTime variable :)

If you want the current time, repleace DateTime with DateTime.Now.
