Inequality Operator

TimeSpan.Inequality Operator

Indicates whether two TimeSpan instances are not equal.

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

public static bool operator !=(
	TimeSpan t1,
	TimeSpan t2
)

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 values of t1 and t2 are not equal; otherwise, false.

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

// Example of the TimeSpan relational operators. 
using System;

class TSRelationalOpsDemo
{
    const string dataFmt = "{0,34}    {1}" ;

    // Compare TimeSpan parameters, and display them with the results. 
    static void CompareTimeSpans( TimeSpan Left, TimeSpan Right, 
        string RightText )
    {
        Console.WriteLine( );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Right: " + RightText, Right );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left == Right", Left == Right );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left >  Right", Left > Right );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left >= Right", Left >= Right );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left != Right", Left != Right );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left <  Right", Left < Right );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Left <= Right", Left <= Right );
    }

    static void Main( )
    {
        TimeSpan Left = new TimeSpan( 2, 0, 0 );

            "different TimeSpan \nobjects and compares them with " +
            "a 2-hour TimeSpan.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, 
            "Left: TimeSpan( 2, 0, 0 )", Left );

        // Create objects to compare with a 2-hour TimeSpan.
        CompareTimeSpans( Left, new TimeSpan( 0, 120, 0 ), 
            "TimeSpan( 0, 120, 0 )" );
        CompareTimeSpans( Left, new TimeSpan( 2, 0, 1 ),

        CompareTimeSpans( Left, new TimeSpan( 2, 0, -1 ), 
            "TimeSpan( 2, 0, -1 )" );
        CompareTimeSpans( Left, TimeSpan.FromDays( 1.0 / 12D ), 
            "TimeSpan.FromDays( 1 / 12 )" );
    }

This example of the TimeSpan relational operators generates
the following output. It creates several different TimeSpan
