And Time. Day(DateTime) Method
Returns an integer value from 1 through 31 representing the day of the month.
public: static int Day(DateTime DateValue);
public static int Day (DateTime DateValue);
static member Day : DateTime -> int
Public Function Day (DateValue As DateTime) As Integer
Date value from which you want to extract the day.
An integer value from 1 through 31 representing the day of the month.
The following example uses the
Day function to obtain the day of the month from a specified date. In the development environment, the date literal is displayed in standard short format (such as "02/12/1969") using the locale settings of your code.
Dim oldDate As Date Dim oldDay As Integer ' Assign a date using standard short format. oldDate = #2/12/1969# oldDay = Microsoft.VisualBasic.DateAndTime.Day(oldDate) ' oldDay now contains 12.
Day is qualified to distinguish it from the System.Windows.Forms.Day enumeration.
If you use the
Day function, you might have to qualify it with the
Microsoft.VisualBasic namespace, because the System.Windows.Forms namespace defines Day as an enumeration. The following example shows how qualifying
Day resolves this ambiguity:
Dim thisDay As Integer = Microsoft.VisualBasic.DateAndTime.Day(Now)
You can also obtain the day of the month by calling
DatePart and specifying
DateInterval.Day for the Interval argument.
