VB date to string

To convert from a date value to a normal string, you can use toString() method that comes with datetime object. In the example below, the code reads the current date and time and formats it as a short date value. Then the data value is convert to a string that we can split into day, month, and year.
Module Module1
   Sub Main()
     Dim strdate As String
     Dim dt = FormatDateTime(DateTime.Now, DateFormat.ShortDate)   'get current date and time and format it

as short date
     strdate = dt.ToString() 'Convert date to string
     Dim dparts = strdate.Split("/") 'split the string to get day, month, and year
     Console.WriteLine("Day:{0}, Month:{1}, Year:{2}", dparts(0), dparts(1), dparts(2))
   End Sub
End Module
