Returns a new DateTimeOffset object that adds a specified number of whole and fractional minutes to the value of this instance.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Public Function AddMinutes ( _ minutes As Double _ ) As DateTimeOffset
- Type: System.Double
A number of whole and fractional minutes. The number can be negative or positive.
The fractional part of the minutes parameter is the fractional part of a minute. For example, 4.5 is equivalent to 4 minutes, 30 seconds, 0 milliseconds. The minutes parameter is rounded to the nearest millisecond.
This method returns a new DateTimeOffset object. It does not modify the value of the current object by adding minutes to its date and time.
Because a DateTimeOffset object does not represent the date and time in a specific time zone, the method does not consider a particular time zone's adjustment rules when it performs date and time arithmetic.
Converting time intervals of less than a minute to a fraction can involve a loss of precision. (For example, one second is 0.01666 of a minute.) If this is problematic, you can use the Add method, which enables you to specify more than one kind of time interval in a single method call and eliminates the need to convert time intervals to fractional parts of a minute.
