TimeSpan.TotalSeconds Property

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

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

Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Syntax

Public ReadOnly Property TotalSeconds As Double
public double TotalSeconds { get; }

Property Value

Type: System..::.Double
The total number of seconds represented by this instance.

Remarks

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

Examples

The following example instantiates a TimeSpan object and displays the value of its TotalSeconds property. It also displays the value of its milliseconds component, which forms the fractional part of the value of its TotalSeconds property.

Module Example
   Public Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)
      ' Define an interval of 1 day, 15+ hours.
      Dim interval As New TimeSpan(1, 15, 42, 45, 750)
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("Value of TimeSpan: {0}", interval) & vbCrLf

      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("{0:N5} seconds, as follows:", interval.TotalSeconds) & vbCrLf
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("   Seconds:      {0,8:N0}", interval.Days * 24 * 60 * 60 + _
                                                  interval.Hours * 60 * 60 + _
                                                  interval.Minutes * 60 + _
                                                  interval.Seconds) & vbCrLf
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("   Milliseconds: {0,8}", interval.Milliseconds) & vbCrLf
   End Sub
End Module
