A String representing the current system date
Returns or sets a string representing the current system date in the format “mm-dd- yyyy”
The allowed formats for setting the date are “m-d-yyyy,” “m-d-y,” “m/d/yyyy,” and “m/d/y.”
To get or set the current system time as a String, use the TimeString property.
To access the current system date as a Date, use the Today property.
The DateString property is new to VB.NET. It is a replacement for the
Date statement, which sets the system date,
and the Date and Date$
functions, which retrieve the system date.
