TimeSpan.Minutes TimeSpan.Minutes TimeSpan.Minutes TimeSpan.Minutes Property

Definition

Gets the minutes component of the time interval represented by the current TimeSpan structure.

public:
 property int Minutes { int get(); };
public int Minutes { get; }
member this.Minutes : int
Public ReadOnly Property Minutes As Integer

Property Value

The minute component of the current TimeSpan structure. The return value ranges from -59 through 59.

Examples

The following example creates several TimeSpan objects and displays the Minutes property of each.

Remarks

A TimeSpan value can be represented as [-]d.hh:mm:ss.ff, where the optional minus sign indicates a negative time interval, the d component is days, hh is hours as measured on a 24-hour clock, mm is minutes, ss is seconds, and ff is fractions of a second. The value of the Minutes property is the minute component, mm.

The Minutes property represents whole minutes, whereas the TotalMinutes property represents whole and fractional minutes.
