TotalMinutes Property

TimeSpan.TotalMinutes Property

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

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

public double TotalMinutes { get; }

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 TotalMinutes property represents whole and fractional minutes, whereas the Minutes property represents whole 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.

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      // Define an interval of 1 day, 15+ hours.
      TimeSpan interval = 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 + 
                                                  interval.Minutes);
      Console.WriteLine("   Seconds:      {0,5}", interval.Seconds);
      Console.WriteLine("   Milliseconds: {0,5}", interval.Milliseconds);
   }
}
// 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
