Hello...
I have a listview in a C# project.
Here is my line of code that shows a current DateTime from an access Database

listView2.Items[x].SubItems.Add(ds.Tables["Notes"].Rows[x]["Tim"].ToString());"

It works fine... but instead of showing  "16-Sept-11 6:05:00 AM" I just want it to show the time... "6:05:00 AM"
Can someone show me what needs to be added to my line of code to change the formatting..
Please and thank you.

Please try:

listView2.Items[x].SubItems.Add(ds.Tables["Notes"].Rows[x]["Tim"].ToString("t"));

James Burger.. are you saying I should do this;  
listView2.Items[x].SubItems.Add(datetime)(ds.Tables["Notes"].Rows[x]["Tim"].ToShortTimeString());

if yes... the compiler does not like it... no such thing as ToshortTimeString();

Please let me know what is the value of ds.Tables["Notes"].Rows[x]["Tim"].GetType().Name.  It seems that it's not a DateTime.
