# TimeSpan.Compare(TimeSpan, TimeSpan) Método

## Definición

Compara dos valores TimeSpan y devuelve un entero que indica si el primer valor es menor, igual o mayor que el segundo valor.Compares two TimeSpan values and returns an integer that indicates whether the first value is shorter than, equal to, or longer than the second value.

``````public:
static int Compare(TimeSpan t1, TimeSpan t2);``````
``public static int Compare (TimeSpan t1, TimeSpan t2);``
``static member Compare : TimeSpan * TimeSpan -> int``
``Public Shared Function Compare (t1 As TimeSpan, t2 As TimeSpan) As Integer``

#### Parámetros

t1
TimeSpan

Primer intervalo de tiempo que se va a comparar.The first time interval to compare.

t2
TimeSpan

Segundo intervalo de tiempo que se va a comparar.The second time interval to compare.

#### Devoluciones

Int32

Uno de los siguientes valores.One of the following values.

ValorValue DescripciónDescription
-1-1 `t1` es más corto que `t2`.`t1` is shorter than `t2`.
00 `t1` es igual a `t2`.`t1` is equal to `t2`.
11 `t1` es más largo que `t2`.`t1` is longer than `t2`.

## Ejemplos

En el ejemplo siguiente se usa el Compare método para comparar varios TimeSpan objetos con un TimeSpan objeto cuyo valor es un intervalo de tiempo de 2 horas.The following example uses the Compare method to compare several TimeSpan objects with a TimeSpan object whose value is a 2-hour time interval.

``````// Define a time interval equal to two hours.
TimeSpan baseInterval = new TimeSpan( 2, 0, 0);

// Define an array of time intervals to compare with
// the base interval.
TimeSpan[] spans = {
TimeSpan.FromSeconds(-2.5),
TimeSpan.FromMinutes(20),
TimeSpan.FromHours(1),
TimeSpan.FromMinutes(90),
baseInterval,
TimeSpan.FromDays(.5),
TimeSpan.FromDays(1)
};

// Compare the time intervals.
foreach (var span in spans) {
int result = TimeSpan.Compare(baseInterval, span);
Console.WriteLine("{0} {1} {2} (Compare returns {3})",
baseInterval,
result == 1 ? ">" : result == 0 ? "=" : "<",
span, result);
}

// The example displays the following output:
//       02:00:00 > -00:00:02.5000000 (Compare returns 1)
//       02:00:00 > 00:20:00 (Compare returns 1)
//       02:00:00 > 01:00:00 (Compare returns 1)
//       02:00:00 > 01:30:00 (Compare returns 1)
//       02:00:00 = 02:00:00 (Compare returns 0)
//       02:00:00 < 12:00:00 (Compare returns -1)
//       02:00:00 < 1.00:00:00 (Compare returns -1)
