Hello all,

I was with VB6 before but i have now switch to Visual Studio 2010.

I need to adjust myself with some code.

I need to have a date format but in 2010, it does not work.

When i code:
lab_date.Text = Format(Date.Now, "dd mmm yyyy")

Open in new window


The result is: "18 02 2011" when it should be 18 Feb 2011.

What do i need to change?

Thanks for your help.

The help documentation has the format string in upper case (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/73ctwf33(v=vs.71).aspx), try this:

lab_date.Text = Format(Date.Now, "dd MMM yyyy")

I also just found out that i could use:

lab_date.Text = Format(Date.Now, "Long Date")

Open in new window
