TimeSpan.TotalDays Property

Updated: December 2009

Gets the value of the current TimeSpan structure expressed in whole and fractional days.

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

public double TotalDays { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Double
The total number of days represented by this instance.

This property converts the value of this instance from ticks to days. This number might include whole and fractional days.

The following example instantiates a TimeSpan object and displays the value of its TotalDays property. It also displays the value of each component (hours, minutes, seconds, milliseconds) that forms the fractional part of the value of its TotalDays property.

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      // Define an interval of 3 days, 16+ hours.
      TimeSpan interval = new TimeSpan(3, 16, 42, 45, 750); 
      Console.WriteLine("Value of TimeSpan: {0}", interval);

      Console.WriteLine("{0:N5} days, as follows:", interval.TotalDays);
      Console.WriteLine("   Days:         {0,3}", interval.Days);
      Console.WriteLine("   Hours:        {0,3}", interval.Hours);
      Console.WriteLine("   Minutes:      {0,3}", interval.Minutes);
      Console.WriteLine("   Seconds:      {0,3}", interval.Seconds);
      Console.WriteLine("   Milliseconds: {0,3}", interval.Milliseconds);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//       Value of TimeSpan: 3.16:42:45.7500000 
//       3.69636 days, as follows: 
//          Days:           3 
//          Hours:         16 
//          Minutes:       42 
//          Seconds:       45 
//          Milliseconds: 750
