Millisecond Property

DateTime.Millisecond Property

 

Gets the milliseconds component of the date represented by this instance.

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

public int Millisecond { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The milliseconds component, expressed as a value between 0 and 999.

You can display the string representation of the Millisecond property by using the "fff" format specifier. For example, the following code displays a string that contains the number of milliseconds in a date and time to the console.

DateTime date1 = new DateTime(2008, 1, 1, 0, 30, 45, 125);
Console.WriteLine("Milliseconds: {0:fff}", 
                  date1);           // displays Milliseconds: 125

You can also display the millisecond component together with the other components of a date and time value by using the "o" standard format specifier. For example:

DateTime date2 = new DateTime(2008, 1, 1, 0, 30, 45, 125);
Console.WriteLine("Date: {0:o}", 
                  date2);           
// Displays the following output to the console:
//      Date: 2008-01-01T00:30:45.1250000

However, the "o" format specifier is intended less for displaying than for round-tripping or storing a DateTime value. You can also display milliseconds together with other date and time components by using a custom format string, as the following example shows.

DateTime date3 = new DateTime(2008, 1, 1, 0, 30, 45, 125);
Console.WriteLine("Date with milliseconds: {0:MM/dd/yyy HH:mm:ss.fff}", 
                  date3);
// Displays the following output to the console:
//       Date with milliseconds: 01/01/2008 00:30:45.125                       

The following example demonstrates the Millisecond property.

System.DateTime moment = new System.DateTime(
								1999, 1, 13, 3, 57, 32, 11);
// Year gets 1999.
int year = moment.Year;

// Month gets 1 (January).
int month = moment.Month;

// Day gets 13.
int day = moment.Day;

// Hour gets 3.
int hour = moment.Hour;

// Minute gets 57.
int minute = moment.Minute;

// Second gets 32.
int second = moment.Second;

// Millisecond gets 11.
int millisecond = moment.Millisecond;
