TimeSpan.GreaterThan Operator

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

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

'Declaration
Public Shared Operator > ( _
	t1 As TimeSpan, _
	t2 As TimeSpan _
) As Boolean

Parameters

t1
Type: System.TimeSpan

The first time interval to compare.

t2
Type: System.TimeSpan

The second time interval to compare.

Return Value

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

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