DateTimeOffset.AddTicks Method

July 28, 2014

Adds a specified number of ticks to the current DateTimeOffset object.

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

public DateTimeOffset AddTicks(
	long ticks
)

Parameters

ticks
Type: System.Int64
A number of 100-nanosecond ticks. The number can be negative or positive.

Return Value

Type: System.DateTimeOffset
An object whose value is the sum of the date and time represented by the current DateTimeOffset object and the number of ticks represented by ticks.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The resulting DateTimeOffset value is less than MinValue.

-or-

The resulting DateTimeOffset value is greater than MaxValue.

A tick represents 100 nanoseconds, or one-ten millionth of a second. Because a tick is a very small and precise time interval, any larger time unit can be expressed as a number of ticks without a loss of precision.

NoteNote:

This method returns a new DateTimeOffset object. It does not modify the value of the current object by adding minutes to its date and time.

The following table lists the number of ticks in a particular time interval.

Because a DateTimeOffset object does not represent the date and time in a specific time zone, the AddTicks method does not consider a particular time zone's adjustment rules when it performs date and time arithmetic.
