Gets and sets the format of the Time Stamp control.

Time format codes must be between %< and >T. For example, to display the day of the month, enter %<%d>T.

This property is similar to the Format String (Digital) property except that it can accept time format codes.

Refer to the valid format specifiers for numeric data types table for information about which format specifiers you can set depending on the data type of the numeric control and the format specifiers syntax elements table for descriptions of the syntax elements.

If you want to format a string to display time, enclose the string with %<>T.
