I have created a label on an ASP.Net page that I want to show the current date & time every time the page is loaded/refreshed., but Im a little rusty having not programmed for more than four years.  I was trying to use the NOW() function but cant remember the syntax for creating a page load event.

put a Label on your Form.
then you can write this code on FormOnLoad event


        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
             label1.Text=DateTime.ToString("MM.dd.yyyy HH:mm:ss");
         }

Sorry I forget Now property,

This is The Correct Code :

     private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
             label1.Text=DateTime.Now.ToString("MM.dd.yyyy HH:mm:ss");
         }

if u want to gt date of client i.e indian user can see date like GMT+530.  then render date in javascrilt.

 at the end of html markup of your page  do like.

 document.getElementById('<%# label1.ClientID %>').value=getdate();    

NOTE: // getDate() is what I  mean by javascript function i dont have it hendy.

In your VB codefile:

Select the Page Events Class THEN select the LoadComplete event handler

Then by using the Format() and Now() functions within this section and assinging it to the text element of your label you will display the current date and time in whatever datetime format you need as in the example below:
    Private Sub Page_LoadComplete(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.LoadComplete

        MyVariable.Text = Format(Now(),"HH:mm")

    End Sub

Open in new window
