# Format decimal time into regular for display to user

I have a formview to display users input.
When user enters time I have a dropdown menu where text is 1:30 pm but the value is 13:50. I need it for calculation of pay.
Later I need to display to user his input. My script to format decimal time to regular is attached. The problem is that I get displayed AM to PM time. Example 1:30 AM instead of 1:30 PM.
I realise that I've asked for it when wrote

If hours >= 12 Then
a = "PM"
End If
but cannot figure out how to fix it
``````Public Function ToDateTime(ByVal value As String) As String
Dim a As String = "AM"

Dim tsplit As String() = value.Split("."c)

Dim hours As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(tsplit(0))
Dim minutes As Double = Convert.ToDouble(tsplit(1))

If hours > 12 AndAlso hours <= 24 Then
hours = hours - 12
End If
If hours = 0 Then
a = "0"
End If

If hours >= 12 Then
a = "PM"
End If

If minutes <= 99 Then
minutes = (60 * (minutes / 100))
minutes = Math.Floor(minutes)
End If

Dim h As String = hours.ToString()
Dim m As String = minutes.ToString()

Dim c As String = h & ":" & m & a

Return c

End Function

See code.  You might want to play around with the format functions for output, or different constructors.
``````decimal fTime = 13.75m;

DateTime time = new DateTime(
Year,
Month,
Day,
(int)fTime,
(int)((fTime - (int)fTime) * 60),
0);

time.ToShortTimeString();
time.ToString("hh:mm tt");
``````

Use the DateTime structure and its formatting methods.  (Create it with decimal values, output your desired format with one of the provided format functions, or ToString(string format).)

I looked into DateTime structure and cannot figure out how to exactly to do that. Can you help me out on example? I have 13.75 in database, how to make it look like 1:45PM?
I have problem only with PM, everything else is working

I have an error message on it
System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Year, Month, and Day parameters describe an un-representable DateTime.

Should be obvious which one is no good, huh?
