TimeSpan.GetHashCode Method

Returns a hash code for this instance.

[Visual Basic]
Overrides Public Function GetHashCode() As Integer
[C#]
public override int GetHashCode();
[C++]
public: int GetHashCode();
[JScript]
public override function GetHashCode() : int;

Return Value

A 32-bit signed integer hash code.

Remarks

Two TimeSpan objects might have the same hash code even though they represent different time values.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following code example generates the hash codes of several TimeSpan objects using the GetHashCode method.
