@hasib08 : That will give Date right.i want only Time Ex:9:28 AM


@avinashy - mail.Headers(“Date”) - will return complete datetime details…
you can extract only time from the variable like

out_time = Datetime.ParseExact(mail.Headers(“Date”).ToString,“HH:mm:ss tt”,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture)

DateTime.Parse(mail.Headers(“Date”)).ToString(“hh:mm:ss tt”)

mail.Headers(“Date”) - is a formatted date time in string type
DateTime.Parse - to parse the string to date time and ToString(“hh:mm:ss tt”) is specifying my return results string ( from entire datetime).

@GBK:its working fine but it is diaplying in 24 hours format,how to get it in 12 hours format inclugin AM or PM

“hh:mm:ss tt” is to get time in 12 hours format (AM/ PM)
pls share the output…

@GBK : Email Recived time is 04:04 PM.

From the code the out put recived is : 16:03:55 PM. Can we convert this into 12 hour format ?


pls check - keep the ToString(“hhmmss tt”) not (“HH:mm:ss tt”)

or try to print both -
DateTime.Parse(mail.Headers(“Date”)).ToString(“hh:mm:ss tt”) - 12 hr format
DateTime.Parse(mail.Headers(“Date”)).ToString(“HH:mm:ss tt”) - 24 hr format
