So you need to add minutes to _appointment.StartDate AFTER you've done the CType?  Or are you trying to add number of minutes in umeStartTime.Text to get your end time?

In VB.NET, just do this:

_appointment.StartDate = CType(_appointment.StartDate.ToShortDateString & " " & umeStartTime.Text, Date).AddMinutes(3)

Or, if you are trying to achieve this:

_appointment.StartDate = CType(_appointment.StartDate.ToShortDateString & " " & umeStartTime.Text, Date)

_appointment.EndDate = CType(_appointment.StartDate.ToShortDateString & " " & umeStartTime.Text, Date).AddMinutes(3)

Another older method of adding dates and times is the DateAdd method, here's an example of adding
3 minutes:

_appointment.StartDate = DateAdd(DateInterval.Minute, 3, _
   CType(_appointment.StartDate.ToShortDateString & " " & umeStartTime.Text, Date))

        MsgBox(_appointment.StartDate.ToString())
