Examples

The following example creates several TimeSpan objects using the constructor overload that initializes a TimeSpan to a specified number of ticks.

// Example of the TimeSpan( __int64 ) constructor.
using namespace System;

// Create a TimeSpan object and display its value.
void CreateTimeSpan( __int64 ticks )
{
   TimeSpan elapsedTime = TimeSpan(ticks);
   
   // Format the constructor for display.
   String^ ctor = String::Format( "TimeSpan( {0} )", ticks );
   
   // Pad the end of a TimeSpan string with spaces if
   // it does not contain milliseconds.
   String^ elapsedStr = elapsedTime.ToString();
   int pointIndex = elapsedStr->IndexOf( ':' );
   pointIndex = elapsedStr->IndexOf( '.', pointIndex );
   if ( pointIndex < 0 )
      elapsedStr = String::Concat( elapsedStr, "        " );

   
   // Display the constructor and its value.
   Console::WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,24}", ctor, elapsedStr );
}

int main()
{
   Console::WriteLine( "This example of the TimeSpan( __int64 ) constructor "
   "\ngenerates the following output.\n" );
   Console::WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,16}", "Constructor", "Value" );
   Console::WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,16}", "-----------", "-----" );
   CreateTimeSpan( 1 );
   CreateTimeSpan( 999999 );
   CreateTimeSpan(  -1000000000000 );
   CreateTimeSpan( 18012202000000 );
   CreateTimeSpan( 999999999999999999 );
   CreateTimeSpan( 1000000000000000000 );
}

Remarks

The specified days, hours, minutes, and seconds are converted to ticks, and that value initializes this instance.

See also

TimeSpan(Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32, Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the TimeSpan structure to a specified number of days, hours, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds.

public:
 TimeSpan(int days, int hours, int minutes, int seconds, int milliseconds);
public TimeSpan (int days, int hours, int minutes, int seconds, int milliseconds);
new TimeSpan : int * int * int * int * int -> TimeSpan
Public Sub New (days As Integer, hours As Integer, minutes As Integer, seconds As Integer, milliseconds As Integer)

Parameters

days
Int32

Number of days.

hours
Int32

Number of hours.

minutes
Int32

Number of minutes.

seconds
Int32

Number of seconds.

milliseconds
Int32

Number of milliseconds.

Exceptions

The parameters specify a TimeSpan value less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

Examples

The following example creates several TimeSpan objects using the constructor overload that initializes a TimeSpan to a specified number of days, hours, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds.

// Example of the TimeSpan( int, int, int, int, int ) constructor. 
using namespace System;

// Create a TimeSpan object and display its value.
void CreateTimeSpan( int days, int hours, int minutes, int seconds, int millisec )

   // Format the constructor for display.
   array<Object^>^boxedParams = gcnew array<Object^>(5);
   boxedParams[ 0 ] = days;
   boxedParams[ 1 ] = hours;
   boxedParams[ 2 ] = minutes;
   boxedParams[ 3 ] = seconds;
   boxedParams[ 4 ] = millisec;
   String^ ctor = String::Format( "TimeSpan( {0}, {1}, {2}, {3}, {4} )", boxedParams );
   
   // Display the constructor and its value.
   Console::WriteLine( "{0,-48}{1,24}", ctor, elapsedTime.ToString() );
}
