TimeSpan.GreaterThan Operator

Indicates whether a specified TimeSpan is greater than another specified TimeSpan.

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

public static bool operator >(
	TimeSpan t1,
	TimeSpan t2
)

Parameters

t1
Type: System.TimeSpan

A TimeSpan.

t2
Type: System.TimeSpan

A TimeSpan.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the value of t1 is greater than the value of t2; otherwise, false.

The following code example compares several TimeSpan objects to a reference TimeSpan using the GreaterThan operator.

using System;

    const string dataFmt = "{0,34}    {1}" ;

    // Compare TimeSpan parameters, and display them with the results.

This example of the TimeSpan relational operators generates
the following output. It creates several different TimeSpan
objects and compares them with a 2-hour TimeSpan.
