What C# code can I use to determine if it's past a certain time of day?
Example, I'm getting a string type that contains 4:30pm in military time....

"16:30"

TimeSpan.Parse(yourString) > DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay

although implementing tryparse would be more fool proof way to code

The following code will make sure the time is in the correct format
string time = "4:30pm";
            DateTime dt = Convert.ToDateTime(Convert.ToDateTime(time).ToString("hh:mm"));

            if (dt.TimeOfDay > DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay)
            {
                // do something
            }

Just guessing....but he probably wants to know if the CURRENT time is past the time in the string?

If so, switch the IF statement order...   =)
