Gets the millisecond component of the time represented by the current DateTimeOffset object.

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

public int Millisecond { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The millisecond component of the current DateTimeOffset object, expressed as an integer between 0 and 999.

You can also create a string representation of a DateTimeOffset object's millisecond component by calling the ToString method with the "fff" custom format specifier.

If you rely on properties such as Now or UtcNow to accurately track the number of elapsed milliseconds, the precision of the time's millisecond component depends on the resolution of the system clock. On Windows NT 3.5 and later, and Windows Vista operating systems, the clock's resolution is approximately 10-15 milliseconds.

The following example displays the number of milliseconds of a DateTimeOffset object by using a custom format specifier and by directly accessing the Millisecond property.

DateTimeOffset date1 = new DateTimeOffset(2008, 3, 5, 5, 45, 35, 649, 
                                new TimeSpan(-7, 0, 0));
Console.WriteLine("Milliseconds value of {0} is {1}.", 
                  date1.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss.fff"), 
// The example produces the following output:
// Milliseconds value of 03/05/2008 05:45:35.649 is 649.
