Hi There,

var today;
var currentDate;
today = new Date();
currentDate= new Date(today.getTime() - (2 * 86400000));

How to convert this javascript code into C# or VB.net

I tried using
Private currentDate As Date
currentDate = New Date(CLng(CDbl(today.TimeOfDay.ToString()) - 2 * 86400000))

but I got an exception.

Please advice.

I hope I read this right and you want to "subtract" 2 days from the current point in time.
If that's the case, in C# you can write this:
DateTime currentDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-2);

Open in new window

VB should work in a similar fashion, but I don't usually do VB and can't check right now.

BTW: I think one of the reasons for the exception that you get is, that there is no type "Date" in .NET. Only "DateTime".
