more clearly
Dim dia As Date = Now
        dia = dia.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy")
        Me.TextBox1.Text = dia

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

You can't get a DateTime variable with formatting like "dd/mm/aaaa". A string variable will do, like the one @jtoutou posted. Or
 
Dim dia As String = Today.Date.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy")

Try the following:
Dim d As Date = Now                 'Date
Dim day As Short = d.Date.Day       'Day
Dim month As Short = d.Date.Month   'Month
Dim year As Short = d.Date.Year     'Year

MsgBox(day.ToString("00") & "/" & month.ToString("00") & "/" & year.ToString("0000"))

Or deppending on your system setting (if this is you format ) you can use dia.ToShortDateString (for  variable always as a stirng Variable...)
