DateTime.Hour Property

Gets the hour component of the date represented by this instance.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Public ReadOnly Property Hour As Integer

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The hour component, expressed as a value between 0 and 23.

The value of the Hour property is always expressed using a 24-hour clock. To retrieve a string that represents the hour of a date and time using a 12-hour clock, call the DateTime.ToString(String) or DateTime.ToString(String, IFormatProvider) method with the "h" custom format specifier. For example:

Dim date1 As Date = #04/01/2008 6:53:00PM#
Console.WriteLine(date1.ToString("%h"))      ' Displays 6
Console.WriteLine(date1.ToString("h tt"))    ' Displays 6 PM

The following example demonstrates the Hour property.

Dim moment As New System.DateTime(1999, 1, 13, 3, 57, 32, 11)

' Year gets 1999. 
Dim year As Integer = moment.Year

' Month gets 1 (January). 
Dim month As Integer = moment.Month

' Day gets 13. 
Dim day As Integer = moment.Day

' Hour gets 3. 
Dim hour As Integer = moment.Hour

' Minute gets 57. 
Dim minute As Integer = moment.Minute

' Second gets 32. 
Dim second As Integer = moment.Second

' Millisecond gets 11. 
Dim millisecond As Integer = moment.Millisecond
