equivalentCodeEntityM:System.TimeSpan.Compare(System.TimeSpan,System.TimeSpan)

Indicates whether a specified TimeSpan is greater than another specified TimeSpan.

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

Public Shared Operator > (
	t1 As TimeSpan,
	t2 As TimeSpan
) As Boolean

Parameters

t1
Type: System.TimeSpan

The first time interval to compare.

t2
Type: System.TimeSpan

The second time interval to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the value of t1 is greater than the value of t2; otherwise, false.

The following example compares several TimeSpan objects to a reference TimeSpan using the GreaterThan operator.
