TimeSpan.GetHashCode Method

Returns a hash code for this instance.

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

'Declaration
Public Overrides Function GetHashCode As Integer

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
A 32-bit signed integer hash code.

Two TimeSpan objects might have the same hash code even though they represent different time values.

The following code example generates the hash codes of several TimeSpan objects using the GetHashCode method.


' Example for the TimeSpan.GetHashCode( ) method.

Module Example
   Sub DisplayHashCode(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock, ByVal interval As TimeSpan)

      ' Create a hash code and a string representation of 
      ' the TimeSpan parameter.
      Dim timeInterval As String = interval.ToString()
      Dim hashCode As Integer = interval.GetHashCode()

      ' Pad the end of the TimeSpan string with spaces if it 
      ' does not contain milliseconds.
      Dim pIndex As Integer = timeInterval.IndexOf(":"c)
      pIndex = timeInterval.IndexOf("."c, pIndex)
      If pIndex < 0 Then timeInterval &= "        "

      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("{0,22}   0x{1:X8}, {1}", _
          timeInterval, hashCode) & vbCrLf
