Hi

I have a windows service program which has a timer.

The timer needs to check the time everyday.

If (System.Time == 14:00)
{
// call a web service
}

But, I just found System.DateTime, but no Time.

How should I code it?

Here's how to get a nice string of the time
DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString()

Otherwise
DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay
returns the TimeSpane where you can check for a particular time

Sorry posted to quick, based on your example above I would use
            TimeSpan target = new TimeSpan(14, 0, 0);
            if (DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay == target)
            {
            }
