Remarks

The PositiveTimeSpanValidator is used to ensure a TimeSpan object meets specific criteria. The CanValidate method determines whether the object type being validated matches the expected type. The object being validated is passed as a parameter of the Validate method. To pass validation, the object being validated must be a positive TimeSpan value.

Constructors

PositiveTimeSpanValidator() PositiveTimeSpanValidator() PositiveTimeSpanValidator() PositiveTimeSpanValidator()

Initializes a new instance of the PositiveTimeSpanValidator class.

Methods

CanValidate(Type) CanValidate(Type) CanValidate(Type) CanValidate(Type)

Determines whether the object type can be validated.

Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.

(Inherited from Object)
GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function.

(Inherited from Object)
GetType() GetType() GetType() GetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.

(Inherited from Object)
ToString() ToString() ToString() ToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.

(Inherited from Object)
Validate(Object) Validate(Object) Validate(Object) Validate(Object)

Determines whether the value of an object is valid.
