A Digital clock is a modern and simple standalone desktop clock which used for displaying the current date and time.

Source code for Digital Clock

<Window xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"      
  xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
        xmlns:src="clr-namespace:WpfApplication1.WpfApplication12.DigitalClock"
        Title="Digital Clock"
        SizeToContent="WidthAndHeight">
    <Window.Resources>
        <src:ClockTicker1 x:Key="clock" />
    </Window.Resources>
    <Window.Content>
        <Binding Source="{StaticResource clock}" Path="DateTime" />
    </Window.Content>
</Window>

Code for VB Window

Imports System
Imports System.Windows
Import System.Windows.Threading
Namespace WpfApplication1.DigitalClock
    Class ClockTicker1
        Inherits DependencyObject
        Public Shared DateTimeProperty As DependencyProperty = DependencyProperty.Register("DateTime", GetType(DateTime),
GetType(ClockTicker1))
        Public Property DateTime() As DateTime
            Get
                Return CType(GetValue(DateTimeProperty), DateTime)
             End Set
        End Property
        Public Sub New()
            Dim timer As New DispatcherTimer()
            AddHandler timer.Tick, AddressOf TimerOnTick
            timer.Interval = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1)
        End Sub
 
        Private Sub TimerOnTick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As EventArgs)
            DateTime = Date.Now
        End Sub
    End Class
End Namespace
