Submitted by Nidhi, on January 10, 2021

Here, we will use GetLastAccessTime() method of the File directory to get the last access time of the specified file or directory.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to get the last access time of a specified file or directory is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

'VB.Net program to get the last access time 
'of a specified file.

Imports System.IO

Module Module1
    Sub Main()
            Dim dt1 As DateTime
            Dim dt2 As DateTime

            dt1 = File.GetLastAccessTime("sample.txt")
            Console.WriteLine("Last Access Time of file(sample.txt) : " & dt1)

            dt2 = File.GetLastAccessTime("sampledir")
            Console.WriteLine("Last Access Time of directory(sampledir) : " & dt2)
        Catch ex As FileNotFoundException
            Console.WriteLine("File does not exist")
        End Try
    End Sub
End Module


Last Access Time of file(sample.txt) : 09-01-2021 14:35:38
Last Access Time of directory(sampledir) : 09-01-2021 21:01:01
Press any key to continue . . .


In the above program, we created the module Module1 that contains the Main() function. The Main() function is the entry point for the program.

Here, we accessed and printed the last access time of "sample.txt" and "sampledir" using GetLastAccessTime() method of File class.
