Dim its As TimeSpan = dtNow.Subtract(dtyest)
Dim hrs As Integer = its.Hours

dtNow is one datetime
dtyest is other datetime

Slight correction:

Use the TotalHours property to get the elapsed hours.

Sorry, I forgot to ask this. How can I get just the time for today...like 12:21:01 PM


dim timenow as date = now.tostring("hh:mm:ss T")
dim time2 = 10:00:00 AM
dim ts as timespan = timenow - time2  ????

I don't know what you're asking. An elapsed time is not for any specific day.

ok in my database, I have a column which stamps time   like 10:21:01 PM only. That is what I get the value from.
now, I want to find out the different in hours from that time to the current time.

db  =  10:21:01 PM
time right now is 12:38:21 PM
result is 2 hrs. How can I get the different here?

Try this

Dim ts As TimeSpan = New TimeSpan()
Dim ts1 As TimeSpan = TimeSpan.Parse("11:59:39")
Dim ts2 As TimeSpan = TimeSpan.Parse("12:00:05")
ts = ts2.Subtract(ts1)

This is what you want... plain and simple.
double totalHours = (DateTime.Now - DateTime.Parse("10:05:01 AM")).TotalHours;
