Hi all,

I have a label, and I retrieve a value from the database that is a TIME field.

When assigning the value to the label as:

Label1.Text=rs(0)

I get the following error:

Conversion from type 'TimeSpan' to type 'String' is not valid.

I tried

Label1.text = CStr(RS(0))

But still not working.

Any help will be appreciated :)

Thanks!

rs(0) is a TimeSpan object, an it contains a lot of information.

You first need to decide with information you need:

rs(0).Minutes
rs(0).Days

and so on.

if you do not want to retrieve an exact value such as those, tell the variable to retrieve a String representation of what is inside the variable this way:

Label1.Text = rs(0).ToString
0
