Time function needs to be 24 hour format

My page here uses the following code to pull out the start and end times from the database for each event.

It's stored in the database fine in 24 hour time format, but I'm currently just getting the first integer for the hour and minute (e.g. '19 0' instead of '19:00').

Here's the part that handles the time:

  <div class="time">
      <div class="hour"><%=hour(rs("ca_starttime"))%></div>
      <div><%=minute(rs("ca_starttime"))%></div>
   </div> 

<div class="time">
      <div class="hour"><%=hour(rs("ca_endtime"))%></div>
      <div><%=minute(rs("ca_endtime"))%></div>
   </div>

How are the values stored in the database i.e. are you saving the hour and minute in different fields, if so are these fields set as integers rather than nvarchar etc.

If you wish to hold a number value that has a zero at the start you will need to store it as a string otherwise you will find the initial zero(s) are removed.

If you don't wish to change your database tables you could of course just right a small bit of code that checked if the value returned for minutes was only 1 charactor long and if so add a zero to the start of it.

I've quickly hacked a way of doing this below

Dim strMin = rs("ca_endtime")
e.g. If Len(strMin) = 1 Then strMin = "0" & strMin
0

Hi wobbled - thanks very much.

That's a good solution, I just added the following suggestion:
<%=Right("00" & minute(rs("ca_starttime")), 2)%>

Yours would work too however, so I'll accept that as the solution.

Many thanks.
