TimeSpan.TotalMilliseconds TimeSpan.TotalMilliseconds TimeSpan.TotalMilliseconds TimeSpan.TotalMilliseconds Property

Definition

Gets the value of the current TimeSpan structure expressed in whole and fractional milliseconds.

public:
 property double TotalMilliseconds { double get(); };
public double TotalMilliseconds { get; }
member this.TotalMilliseconds : double
Public ReadOnly Property TotalMilliseconds As Double

Property Value

The total number of milliseconds represented by this instance.

Examples

The following example instantiates a TimeSpan object and displays the value of its TotalMilliseconds property.

// Define an interval of 1 day, 15+ hours.
TimeSpan interval = new TimeSpan(1, 15, 42, 45, 750); 
Console.WriteLine("Value of TimeSpan: {0}", interval);

Console.WriteLine("There are {0:N5} milliseconds, as follows:", interval.TotalMilliseconds);
long nMilliseconds = interval.Days * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000 + 
                     interval.Hours *60 * 60 * 1000 + 
                     interval.Minutes * 60 * 1000 + 
                     interval.Seconds * 1000 + 
                     interval.Milliseconds;
Console.WriteLine("   Milliseconds:     {0,18:N0}", nMilliseconds);
Console.WriteLine("   Ticks:            {0,18:N0}", 
                  nMilliseconds * 10000 - interval.Ticks);

// The example displays the following output:
//       Value of TimeSpan: 1.15:42:45.7500000
//       There are 142,965,750.00000 milliseconds, as follows:
//          Milliseconds:            142,965,750
//          Ticks:                             0
Option Strict On

Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      ' Define an interval of 1 day, 15+ hours.
      Dim interval As New TimeSpan(1, 15, 42, 45, 750) 
      Console.WriteLine("Value of TimeSpan: {0}", interval)
      
      Console.WriteLine("There are {0:N5} milliseconds, as follows:", interval.TotalMilliseconds)
      Dim nMilliseconds As Long = interval.Days * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000 + _
                                     interval.Hours *60 * 60 * 1000 + _
                                     interval.Minutes * 60 * 1000 + _
                                     interval.Seconds * 1000 + _
                                     interval.Milliseconds
      Console.WriteLine("   Milliseconds:     {0,18:N0}", nMilliseconds)
      Console.WriteLine("   Ticks:            {0,18:N0}", nMilliseconds * 10000 - interval.Ticks)
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       Value of TimeSpan: 1.15:42:45.7500000
'       There are 142,965,750.00000 milliseconds, as follows:
'          Milliseconds:            142,965,750
'          Ticks:                             0

Remarks

This property converts the value of this instance from ticks to milliseconds. This number might include whole and fractional milliseconds.

The TotalMilliseconds property represents whole and fractional milliseconds, whereas the Milliseconds property represents whole milliseconds.
