TimeSpan.UnaryNegation Operator (TimeSpan)

 
equivalentCodeEntityM:System.TimeSpan.Negate

Returns a TimeSpan whose value is the negated value of the specified instance.

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

public static TimeSpan operator -(
	TimeSpan t
)

Parameters

t
Type: System.TimeSpan

The time interval to be negated.

Return Value

Type: System.TimeSpan

An object that has the same numeric value as this instance, but the opposite sign.

Exception Condition
OverflowException

The negated value of this instance cannot be represented by a TimeSpan; that is, the value of this instance is TimeSpan.MinValue.

The following example applies the UnaryNegation operator to several TimeSpan objects.

// Example of the TimeSpan.Duration( ) and TimeSpan.Negate( ) methods,
// and the TimeSpan Unary Negation and Unary Plus operators.
using System;

class DuraNegaUnaryDemo
{
    const string dataFmt = "{0,22}{1,22}{2,22}" ;

    static void ShowDurationNegate( TimeSpan interval )
    {
        // Display the TimeSpan value and the results of the 
        // Duration and Negate methods.
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, 
            interval, interval.Duration( ), interval.Negate( ) );
    }

    static void Main()
    {
        Console.WriteLine(
            "This example of TimeSpan.Duration( ), " +
            "TimeSpan.Negate( ), \nand the TimeSpan Unary " +
            "Negation and Unary Plus operators \n" +
            "generates the following output.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, 
            "TimeSpan", "Duration( )", "Negate( )" );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, 
            "--------", "-----------", "---------" );

        // Create TimeSpan objects and apply the Unary Negation
        // and Unary Plus operators to them.
        ShowDurationNegate( new TimeSpan( 1 ) );
        ShowDurationNegate( new TimeSpan( -1234567 ) );
        ShowDurationNegate( 
            + new TimeSpan( 0, 0, 10, -20, -30 ) );
        ShowDurationNegate( 
            + new TimeSpan( 0, -10, 20, -30, 40 ) );
        ShowDurationNegate( 
            - new TimeSpan( 1, 10, 20, 40, 160 ) );
        ShowDurationNegate( 
            - new TimeSpan( -10, -20, -30, -40, -50 ) );
