Get the current date in Visual Basic 2008


I dont know how to get the current date in visual basic 2008. Here is a sample code

regDate = Format(Date.Now(), "ddMMMyyyy")

The output is like 7/02/1900

Need help

User can use this

Dim todaysdate As String = String.Format("{0:dd/MM/yyyy}", DateTime.Now)

this will format the date as required whereas user can change the string type dd/MM/yyyy or MM/dd/yyyy or yyyy/MM/dd or even can have this format to get the time from date

yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:ss
