TimeSpan.FromMinutes Method

Returns a TimeSpan that represents a specified number of minutes, where the specification is accurate to the nearest millisecond.

[Visual Basic]
Public Shared Function FromMinutes( _
   ByVal value As Double _
) As TimeSpan
[C#]
public static TimeSpan FromMinutes(
 double value
);
[C++]
public: static TimeSpan FromMinutes(
 double value
);
[JScript]
public static function FromMinutes(
   value : double
) : TimeSpan;

Parameters

value
A number of minutes, accurate to the nearest millisecond.

Return Value

A TimeSpan that represents value.

Exceptions

Exception Type Condition
OverflowException value is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.
ArgumentException value is equal to Double.NaN.

Remarks

The value parameter is converted to milliseconds, which is converted to ticks, and that number of ticks is used to intialize the new TimeSpan. Therefore, value will only be considered accurate to the nearest millisecond.

If value is Double.PositiveInfinity, MaxValue is returned. If value is Double.NegativeInfinity, MinValue is returned.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following code example creates several TimeSpan objects using the FromMinutes method.
