TimeSpan.Seconds Property

Gets the second component of the time interval represented by the current TimeSpan structure.

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

'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property Seconds As Integer

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The second component of the current TimeSpan structure. The return value ranges from -59 through 59.

A TimeSpan value can be represented as [-]d.hh:mm:ss.ff, where the optional minus sign indicates a negative time interval, the d component is days, hh is hours as measured on a 24-hour clock, mm is minutes, ss is seconds, and ff is fractions of a second. The value of the Seconds property is the seconds component, ss.

The following code example creates several TimeSpan objects and displays the Seconds property of each.
