DateTimeOffset.Hour Property

Gets the hour component of the time represented by the current DateTimeOffset object.

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

public int Hour { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The hour component of the current DateTimeOffset object. This property uses a 24-hour clock; the value ranges from 0 to 23.

The Hour property is not affected by the value of the Offset property.

You can also create a string representation of a DateTimeOffset object's hour component by calling the ToString method with the "H", or "HH" custom format specifiers.

The following example displays the hour component of a DateTimeOffset object in three different ways:

  • By retrieving the value of the Hour property.

  • By calling the ToString(String) method with the "H" format specifier.

  • By calling the ToString(String) method with the "HH" format specifier.

DateTimeOffset theTime = new DateTimeOffset(2008, 3, 1, 14, 15, 00, 
                                       DateTimeOffset.Now.Offset);
Console.WriteLine("The hour component of {0} is {1}.", 
                  theTime, theTime.Hour);

Console.WriteLine("The hour component of {0} is{1}.", 
                  theTime, theTime.ToString(" H"));

Console.WriteLine("The hour component of {0} is {1}.", 
                  theTime, theTime.ToString("HH"));
// The example produces the following output: 
//    The hour component of 3/1/2008 2:15:00 PM -08:00 is 14. 
//    The hour component of 3/1/2008 2:15:00 PM -08:00 is 14. 
//    The hour component of 3/1/2008 2:15:00 PM -08:00 is 14.
