ManagementDateTimeConverter.ToTimeSpan Method

Converts a given DMTF time interval to a TimeSpan.

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

public static TimeSpan ToTimeSpan(
	string dmtfTimespan
)

Parameters

dmtfTimespan
Type: System.String

A string representation of the DMTF time interval.

Return Value

Type: System.TimeSpan
A TimeSpan that represents the given DMTF time interval.

Time interval in WMI is represented in DMTF format. This format is explained in WMI SDK documentation. If the DMTF time interval value is more than that of MaxValue then ArgumentOutOfRangeException is thrown.

.NET Framework Security

Full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted code. For more information, see Using Libraries from Partially Trusted Code.

The following example converts a given DMTF time interval to TimeSpan.

using System;
using System.Management;

// The sample below demonstrates the various conversions 
// that can be done using ManagementDateTimeConverter class     
class Sample_ManagementDateTimeConverterClass
{
    public static int Main(string[] args) 
    {
        string dmtfDate = "20020408141835.999999-420";
        string dmtfTimeInterval = "00000010122532:123456:000";

        // Converting DMTF datetime to System.DateTime
        DateTime dt = 
            ManagementDateTimeConverter.ToDateTime(dmtfDate);

        // Converting System.DateTime to DMTF datetime 
        string dmtfDateTime = 
            ManagementDateTimeConverter.ToDmtfDateTime(DateTime.Now);

        // Converting DMTF time interval to System.TimeSpan
        System.TimeSpan tsRet = 
            ManagementDateTimeConverter.ToTimeSpan(dmtfTimeInterval);

        //Converting System.TimeSpan to DMTF time interval format
        System.TimeSpan ts = 
            new System.TimeSpan(10,12,25,32,456);
        string dmtfTimeInt  = 
            ManagementDateTimeConverter.ToDmtfTimeInterval(ts);

        return 0;
    }
}
