Property Value

Type: System.Int64

The tick counter value of the underlying timer mechanism.

The get accessor calls the Stopwatch.GetTimestamp method to get the timestamp. If the Stopwatch class uses a high-resolution performance counter, GetTimestamp returns the current value of that counter. If the Stopwatch class uses the system timer, GetTimestamp returns the Ticks property of DateTime.Now.
