How to show a fixed time in the Clock control

The Clock control usually displays the current time on the machine where it is hosted. To freeze the clock to display a fixed time, the Boolean property StopTimer can be used. Then, using the Clock control’s Now property, the desired time can be displayed or the default time will be displayed.

//Gets or sets the value to freeze or unfreeze time in the clock.

this.clock1.StopTimer = true;
//Gets or sets the value to freeze or unfreeze time in the clock.

Me.clock1.StopTimer = True
