TimeSpan::FromTicks Method (Int64)

 

Returns a TimeSpan that represents a specified time, where the specification is in units of ticks.

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

public:
static TimeSpan FromTicks(
	long long value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System::Int64

A number of ticks that represent a time.

Return Value

Type: System::TimeSpan

An object that represents value.

This is a convenience method with the same behavior as the TimeSpan::TimeSpan(Int64) constructor. A single tick represents one hundred nanoseconds or one ten-millionth of a second. There are 10,000 ticks in a millisecond.

The following example creates several TimeSpan objects using the FromTicks method.

// Example of the TimeSpan::FromTicks( __int64 ) method.
using namespace System;
void GenTimeSpanFromTicks( __int64 ticks )
{

   // Create a TimeSpan object and TimeSpan string from 
   // a number of ticks.
   TimeSpan interval = TimeSpan::FromTicks( ticks );
   String^ timeInterval = interval.ToString();

   // Pad the end of the TimeSpan string with spaces if it 
   // does not contain milliseconds.
   int pIndex = timeInterval->IndexOf( ':' );
   pIndex = timeInterval->IndexOf( '.', pIndex );
   if ( pIndex < 0 )
      timeInterval = String::Concat( timeInterval, "        " );

   Console::WriteLine( "{0,21}{1,26}", ticks, timeInterval );
}

int main()
{
   Console::WriteLine( "This example of TimeSpan::FromTicks( __int64 )\n"
   "generates the following output.\n" );
   Console::WriteLine( "{0,21}{1,18}", "FromTicks", "TimeSpan" );
   Console::WriteLine( "{0,21}{1,18}", "---------", "--------" );
   GenTimeSpanFromTicks( 1 );
   GenTimeSpanFromTicks( 12345 );
   GenTimeSpanFromTicks( 123456789 );
   GenTimeSpanFromTicks( 1234567898765 );
   GenTimeSpanFromTicks( 12345678987654321 );
   GenTimeSpanFromTicks( 10000000 );
   GenTimeSpanFromTicks( 600000000 );
   GenTimeSpanFromTicks( 36000000000 );
   GenTimeSpanFromTicks( 864000000000 );
   GenTimeSpanFromTicks( 18012202000000 );
}
