Hello Experts,
I have 3 combo boxes the are Hours (01 -24), Minutes (15, 30, 45) and Duration (15 - 120 in 15 increments). I need to combine Hours + Minutes to determine a Starting Time, obviously in Military time (ie 1330) and the add the duration to get Ending Time. This is a VB.Net CF app.

Thanks,

JackW9653

I need a method to determine End Time by adding the Hour+Minute+Duration.

Hello JackW9653,

Use something like this....

        Dim StartTime As Date = New Date(1, 1, 1, cbHours.Text, cbMinutes.Text, 0)
        Dim EndTime As Date = StartTime.AddMinutes(cbDuration.Text)
        MsgBox(EndTime.ToString("HHmm"))

Regards,

Wayne

Or, even shorter....

       Dim StartTime As Date = New Date(1, 1, 1, cbHours.Text, cbMinutes.Text, 0).AddMinutes(cbDuration.Text)
        MsgBox(EndTime.ToString("HHmm"))

Hi Wayne and thanks for the quick reply. Gets the "Implicit Conversion from 'String' to 'Integer' Error for the cbHours.text and cbMinutes.txt and "Implicit Conversion from 'String' To 'Double' for cbDuratation.txt

If you have Option Strict On then you will need to convert the values from your ComobBoxes into numeric values.

This can be done using CInt(), Integer.Parse(), etc...

    Dim StartTime As Date = New Date(1, 1, 1, Integer.Parse(cbHours.Text), Integer.Parse(cbMinutes.Text), 0).AddMinutes(Double.Parse(cbDuration.Text))
