TimeSpan.TotalSeconds Property

Gets the value of the current TimeSpan structure expressed in whole and fractional seconds.

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

public double TotalSeconds { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Double
The total number of seconds represented by this instance.

This property converts the value of this instance from ticks to seconds. This number might include whole and fractional seconds.

The following example instantiates a TimeSpan object and displays the value of its TotalSeconds property. It also displays the value of its milliseconds component, which forms the fractional part of the value of its TotalSeconds property.


using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      // Define an interval of 1 day, 15+ hours.
      TimeSpan interval = new TimeSpan(1, 15, 42, 45, 750); 
      Console.WriteLine("Value of TimeSpan: {0}", interval);

      Console.WriteLine("{0:N5} seconds, as follows:", interval.TotalSeconds);
      Console.WriteLine("   Seconds:      {0,8:N0}", interval.Days * 24 * 60 * 60 + 
                                                  interval.Hours *60 * 60 + 
                                                  interval.Minutes * 60 + 
                                                  interval.Seconds);
      Console.WriteLine("   Milliseconds: {0,8}", interval.Milliseconds);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       Value of TimeSpan: 1.15:42:45.7500000
//       142,965.75000 seconds, as follows:
//          Seconds:       142,965
//          Milliseconds:      750
