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

Public ReadOnly Property TotalMinutes As Double

Property Value

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

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

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

Module Example
   Public Sub Main()
      ' Define an interval of 1 day, 15+ hours.
      Dim interval As New TimeSpan(1, 15, 42, 45, 750) 
      Console.WriteLine("Value of TimeSpan: {0}", interval)

      Console.WriteLine("{0:N5} minutes, as follows:", interval.TotalMinutes)
      Console.WriteLine("   Minutes:      {0,5}", interval.Days * 24 * 60 + _ 
                                                  interval.Hours * 60 + _
      Console.WriteLine("   Seconds:      {0,5}", interval.Seconds)
      Console.WriteLine("   Milliseconds: {0,5}", interval.Milliseconds)
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       Value of TimeSpan: 1.15:42:45.7500000
'       2,382.76250 minutes, as follows:
'          Minutes:       2382
'          Seconds:         45
'          Milliseconds:   750
