Returns a new DateTimeOffset object that adds a specified number of ticks to the value of this instance.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System.Int64
A number of 100-nanosecond ticks. The number can be negative or positive.
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.
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.
Number of ticks
Depends on number of days in the month.
Because a DateTimeOffset object does not represent the date and time in a specific time zone, the method does not consider a particular time zone's adjustment rules when it performs date and time arithmetic.
