TimeSpanSecondsOrInfiniteConverter Class

Converts a TimeSpan expressed in seconds or as a standard infinite time span.

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

public sealed class TimeSpanSecondsOrInfiniteConverter : TimeSpanSecondsConverter

This type, like all the other configuration converter types, converts strings found in the configuration file to and from the related strongly typed properties.

In particular, the TimeSpanSecondsOrInfiniteConverter converts String seconds, assigned to a configuration property, to TimeSpan seconds, and vice versa. If the configuration property has a String value of "infinite", it converts this value to MaxValue and vice versa.

The infinite TimeSpan value is represented by the MaxValue enumeration value.

Refer to the code examples in the InfiniteTimeSpanConverter and TimeSpanMinutesConverter classes.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
