'VB.Net program to print file creation time.

Imports System.IO

Module Module1
    Sub Main()
            Dim D As DateTime = File.GetCreationTime("sample.txt")
            Console.WriteLine("File Creation Time : " & D.ToString())
        Catch ex As FileNotFoundException
            Console.WriteLine("File does not exist")
        End Try
    End Sub
End Module


File Creation Time : 06-01-2021 22:19:11
Press any key to continue . . .


In the above program, we created a module Module1 that contains the Main() function. The Main() function is the entry point for the program. Here, we get the file creation time of the "sample.txt" file using GetCreationTime() method and then assigned it to the object of the DateTime class and print the creation time on the console screen.

If the specified file does not exist in the computer system then a FileNotFoundException gets generated and prints the appropriate message on the console screen.
