Hello Experts,

I'm working with VB.Net and I want to get the client DateTimeStamp and populated to the "DTS" textbox everytime and AddPage is opened.
How can I do it using jQuery or JS?  

Many thanks!

Try below and I have a working sample here http://jsbin.com/UQAHegI/1/edit?html,js,output
var date1 = new Date(); 
var date2=date1.toString();
$('div#result').text(date2);
$('input#time').val(date2);

Open in new window

  <div id="result"></div>
  <input id="time" name="time">

Open in new window

Hi Padas,

Thanks for your quick reply.  
Seems to work with HTML page.  
How can I format the the output as "12/25/2013 9:53 PM" and how to populate with an ASPX TextBox?

Regards,

I have updated the date http://jsbin.com/UQAHegI/2/edit?html,js,output
var ampm = 'AM';
var date = new Date(),
    month = date.getMonth() + 1, // 0-11,
    day = date.getDate(),
    year = date.getFullYear(),
    hour = date.getHours(),
    minute = date.getMinutes();
//year   = year.toString().slice(2,4);
year = year.toString();
month = month < 10 ? "0" + month : month;
minute = minute < 10 ? "0" + minute : minute;
if (hour >= 12) {
    ampm = 'PM';
    if (hour > 12) {
        hour = hour - 12;
    }
}
theTime = hour + ':' + minute + ' ' + ampm;
theFullDate = day + '/' + month + '/' + year + ' ' + theTime;
$('div#result').text(theFullDate);
$('input#time').val(theFullDate);

Open in new window

As far as getting the date to your form input, jquery/javascript is run after the page loads and your serverside code runs on the server before the page loads.   You simply need to create a form input (or div or td) to place the date.    In this case, using an input with the id time.
