VB format date

In VB (.NET) you can use FormatDateTime(Exp_datetime[,Format]) function to format date and time expression.
The Exp_date argument is the date/time value to be formatted. The Format argument is optional. It represents the format style to be applied to the data/time value. The Format argument can take one of four values as shown below.
-DateFormat.GeneralDate can display both date and time. If there is only date in the date/time expression, the short date is displayed. For the time, the long time is displayed.
-DateFormat.LongDate displays the data in long date form.
-DateFormat.LongTime displays the time in long time form.
-DateFormat.ShortDate displays the date in short date form.
-DateFormat.ShortTime displays the time in short time form.

Example:
Module Module1

   Sub Main()
     Dim td = Today 'get current day
     Dim ftd = FormatDateTime(td, DateFormat.LongDate) 'long date format
     Console.WriteLine("Today:{0}", ftd) 'display it
     Console.ReadLine()
   End Sub
End Module
