using namespace System;

void main()
{
   DateTime dateValue(2013, 9, 15, 12, 0, 0);
   
   array<Double>^ minutes = { .01667, .08333, .16667, .25, .33333, 
                              .5, .66667, 1, 2, 15, 30, 17, 45, 
                              60, 180, 60 * 24 };
   
   for each (Double minute in minutes)
      Console::WriteLine("{0} + {1} minute(s) = {2}", dateValue, minute, 
                         dateValue.AddMinutes(minute));

Remarks

This method does not change the value of this DateTime. Instead, it returns a new DateTime whose value is the result of this operation.

The fractional part of value is the fractional part of a minute. For example, 4.5 is equivalent to 4 minutes, 30 seconds, 0 milliseconds, and 0 ticks.

The value parameter is rounded to the nearest millisecond.
