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

Syntax

'Declaration
Public Sub New ( _
    hours As Integer, _
    minutes As Integer, _
    seconds As Integer _
)
public TimeSpan(
    int hours,
    int minutes,
    int seconds
)

Parameters

Exceptions

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

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

Remarks

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

Examples

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

' Example of the TimeSpan( Integer, Integer, Integer ) constructor.

Module Example

   ' Create a TimeSpan object and display its value.
   Sub CreateTimeSpan(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock, ByVal hours As Integer, ByVal minutes As Integer, _
       ByVal seconds As Integer)

      Dim elapsedTime As New TimeSpan(hours, minutes, seconds)

      ' Format the constructor for display.
      Dim ctor As String = _
          String.Format("TimeSpan( {0}, {1}, {2} )", _
              hours, minutes, seconds)

      ' Display the constructor and its value.
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("{0,-37}{1,16}", _
          ctor, elapsedTime.ToString()) & vbCrLf
   End Sub

   Public Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)

      outputBlock.Text &= _

      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("{0,-37}{1,16}", "-----------", "-----") & vbCrLf
