July 28, 2014

Represents the number of ticks in 1 hour. This field is constant.

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

public const long TicksPerHour

The value of this constant is 36 billion; that is, 36,000,000,000.

The following code example references and displays the value of the TicksPerHour field.


// Example of the TimeSpan fields.
using System;

class Example
{
   // Pad the end of a TimeSpan string with spaces if it does not 
   // contain milliseconds.
   static string Align(TimeSpan interval)
   {
      string intervalStr = interval.ToString();
      int pointIndex = intervalStr.IndexOf(':');

      pointIndex = intervalStr.IndexOf('.', pointIndex);
      if (pointIndex < 0) intervalStr += "        ";
      return intervalStr;
   }

   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      const string numberFmt = "{0,-22}{1,18:N0}";
      const string timeFmt = "{0,-22}{1,26}";

      outputBlock.Text +=

          TimeSpan.TicksPerDay) + "\n";
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(numberFmt, "Ticks per hour",
          TimeSpan.TicksPerHour) + "\n";
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(numberFmt, "Ticks per minute",
