VB.NET passing a timestamp to the UpdateValue command

Happy Friday!

 

I'm working on writing a zero to a simulator tag using the line:

 
pt.Data.UpdateValue(0, Now(), PISDK.DataMergeConstants.dmInsertDuplicates, Nothing)

It works, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to get a different time rather than Now().

 

I tried the following lines of code and passed piTime to the UpdateValue command:

 
Dim piTime As New PITimeServer.PITime
piTime.LocalDate = TextBox4.Text

Even though it Builds OK, the TextBox4 date that I entered appears in the "piTime" Watch in red and the tag doesnt get updated.  Looking around in the pisdk chum file, I see a reference to PITimeFormat, but not sure if this is the problem.

 

Any help would be appreciated!
