Submitted by Nidhi, on January 11, 2021

Here, we will use the GetLastWriteTime() method of the File directory to set the last write time of a specified file or directory.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to get the last write 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 write time of a 
'specified file or directory.

Imports System.IO

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

            dt1 = File.GetLastWriteTime("sample.txt")
            Console.WriteLine("Last Write Time of file(sample.txt) : " + dt1)

            dt2 = File.GetLastWriteTime("sampledir")
            Console.WriteLine("Last Write Time of directory(sampledir) : " + dt2)

        Catch ex As FileNotFoundException
            Console.WriteLine("File does not exist")
        End Try
    End Sub
End Module

Output:

Last Write Time of file(sample.txt) : 06-01-2021 22:19:23
Last Write Time of directory(sampledir) : 09-01-2021 21:00:45
Press any key to continue . . .

Explanation:

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 get the last write time of "sample.txt" or "sampledir" using the GetLastWriteTime() method of File class. Then we printed the write time on the console screen.
