TimeSpan Constructor (Int32, Int32, Int32)

 

Initializes a new instance of the TimeSpan structure to a specified number of hours, minutes, and seconds.

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

public TimeSpan(
	int hours,
	int minutes,
	int seconds
)

Parameters

hours
Type: System.Int32

Number of hours.

minutes
Type: System.Int32

Number of minutes.

seconds
Type: System.Int32

Number of seconds.

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The parameters specify a TimeSpan value less than TimeSpan.MinValue or greater than TimeSpan.MaxValue.

The specified hours, minutes, and seconds are converted to ticks, and that value initializes this instance.

The following example creates several TimeSpan objects using the constructor overload that initializes a TimeSpan to a specified number of hours, minutes, and seconds.

// Example of the TimeSpan( int, int, int ) constructor.
using System;

class TimeSpanCtorIIIDemo
{
    // Create a TimeSpan object and display its value.
    static void CreateTimeSpan( int hours, int minutes, 
        int seconds )
    {
        TimeSpan elapsedTime = 
            new TimeSpan( hours, minutes, seconds );

        // Format the constructor for display.
        string ctor = String.Format( "TimeSpan( {0}, {1}, {2} )", 
            hours, minutes, seconds);

        // Display the constructor and its value.
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-37}{1,16}", 
            ctor, elapsedTime.ToString( ) );
    }

    static void Main( )
    {
        Console.WriteLine(
            "This example of the TimeSpan( int, int, int ) " +
            "\nconstructor generates the following output.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-37}{1,16}", "Constructor", "Value" );
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-37}{1,16}", "-----------", "-----" );

        CreateTimeSpan( 10, 20, 30 );
        CreateTimeSpan( -10, 20, 30 );
        CreateTimeSpan( 0, 0, 37230 );
        CreateTimeSpan( 1000, 2000, 3000 );
        CreateTimeSpan( 1000, -2000, -3000 );
        CreateTimeSpan( 999999, 999999, 999999 );
    } 
}
