I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This will work.. Please use this.

ts.ToString("hh\:mm")

 Dim time As String = "08:00:00"
        Dim ts As TimeSpan = TimeSpan.Parse(time)
        Dim mark As String = ts.ToString("hh\:mm")
