public double TotalHours { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Double

The total number of hours represented by this instance.

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

The TotalHours property represents whole and fractional hours, whereas the Hours property represents whole hours.

The following example instantiates a TimeSpan object and displays the value its TotalHours property. It also displays the value of each component (hours, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds) that forms the fractional part of the value of its TotalHours 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} hours, as follows:", interval.TotalHours);
      Console.WriteLine("   Hours:        {0,3}", 
                        interval.Days * 24 + interval.Hours);
      Console.WriteLine("   Minutes:      {0,3}", interval.Minutes);
      Console.WriteLine("   Seconds:      {0,3}", interval.Seconds);
      Console.WriteLine("   Milliseconds: {0,3}", interval.Milliseconds);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       Value of TimeSpan: 1.15:42:45.7500000
//       39.71271 hours, as follows:
//          Hours:         39
//          Minutes:       42
//          Seconds:       45
//          Milliseconds: 750
