Public ReadOnly Property TotalSeconds As Double

Property Value

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

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

The following example instantiates a TimeSpan object and displays the value of its TotalSeconds property. It also displays the value of its milliseconds component, which forms the fractional part of the value of its TotalSeconds property.

Module Example
   Public Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)
      ' Define an interval of 1 day, 15+ hours.
      Dim interval As New TimeSpan(1, 15, 42, 45, 750)
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("Value of TimeSpan: {0}", interval) & vbCrLf

      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("{0:N5} seconds, as follows:", interval.TotalSeconds) & vbCrLf
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("   Seconds:      {0,8:N0}", interval.Days * 24 * 60 * 60 + _
                                                  interval.Hours * 60 * 60 + _
                                                  interval.Minutes * 60 + _
                                                  interval.Seconds) & vbCrLf
      outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("   Milliseconds: {0,8}", interval.Milliseconds) & vbCrLf
   End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'       Value of TimeSpan: 1.15:42:45.7500000
'       142,965.75000 seconds, as follows:
