visual studio eventlog1 query events by date/time or WMI query by date/time

Posted on 2010-09-15

I am using the WMI for the following:
Dim objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & myServer & "\root\cimv2")
            Dim colLoggedEvents = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_NTLogEvent Where Logfile = '" & Me.cmbEventType.SelectedItem.ToString & "'")

This section below is commented out since I do not know what to use as a filer column
            'and TimeGenerated >='" & Me.dtFrom.ToString & "' and TimeGenerated <='" & Me.dtto.ToString & "'"

This section below is using vb studio 2010 and i do not know how to filter this either for a date/time range.

Me.EventLog1.MachineName = myServer
                'Me.EventLog1.Log = Me.cmbEventType.SelectedItem.ToString
                'myEventLogCount = Me.EventLog1.Entries.Count

                'For m = 0 To myEventLogCount

                '    myDate = Me.EventLog1.Entries.Item(m).TimeGenerated.Month & "/" & Me.EventLog1.Entries.Item(m).TimeGenerated.Day & "/" & Me.EventLog1.Entries.Item(m).TimeGenerated.Year
                '    myTime = Me.EventLog1.Entries.Item(m).TimeGenerated.Hour & ":" & Me.EventLog1.Entries.Item(m).TimeGenerated.Minute & ":" & Me.EventLog1.Entries.Item(m).TimeGenerated.Second
                '    mySource = Me.EventLog1.Entries.Item(m).Source
                '    myCategory = Me.EventLog1.Entries.Item(m).Category
                '    myEvent = Me.EventLog1.Entries.Item(m).EntryType
                '    myUser = Me.EventLog1.Entries.Item(m).UserName

Hi, the syntax for the date you need is


It's called UTC format:

This would hopefully help you convert your time to UTC in VB.NET:

Thanks for the grade.  I'm not that familiar with .NET....would you mind posting the line(s) of code that you used to convert your input box dates to UTC?
