Initializes a new instance of the TimeSpan structure to a specified number of days, hours, minutes, and seconds.

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

public TimeSpan(
	int days,
	int hours,
	int minutes,
	int seconds
)

Parameters

days
Type: System.Int32

Number of days.

hours
Type: System.Int32

Number of hours.

minutes
Type: System.Int32

Number of minutes.

seconds
Type: System.Int32

Number of seconds.

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The parameters specify a TimeSpan value less than TimeSpan.MinValue or greater than TimeSpan.MaxValue.

The specified days, hours, minutes, and seconds are converted to ticks, and that value initializes this instance.

The following example creates several TimeSpan objects using the constructor overload that initializes a TimeSpan to a specified number of days, hours, minutes, and seconds.

using System;

class Example
{
    // Create a TimeSpan object and display its value.
    static void CreateTimeSpan( int days, int hours, 
        int minutes, int seconds )
    {
        TimeSpan elapsedTime = 
            new TimeSpan( days, hours, minutes, seconds );

        // Format the constructor for display.
        string ctor = 
            String.Format( "TimeSpan( {0}, {1}, {2}, {3} )", 
                days, hours, minutes, seconds);

        // Display the constructor and its value.
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-44}{1,16}", 
            ctor, elapsedTime.ToString( ) );
    }

    static void Main( )
    {
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-44}{1,16}", "Constructor", "Value" );
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,-44}{1,16}", "-----------", "-----" );

        CreateTimeSpan( 10, 20, 30, 40 );
        CreateTimeSpan( -10, 20, 30, 40 );
        CreateTimeSpan( 0, 0, 0, 937840 );
        CreateTimeSpan( 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000 );
        CreateTimeSpan( 1000, -2000, -3000, -4000 );
        CreateTimeSpan( 999999, 999999, 999999, 999999 );
    } 
} 
// The example displays the following output:
//       Constructor                                            Value
//       -----------                                            -----
//       TimeSpan( 10, 20, 30, 40 )                       10.20:30:40
//       TimeSpan( -10, 20, 30, 40 )                      -9.03:29:20
//       TimeSpan( 0, 0, 0, 937840 )                      10.20:30:40
//       TimeSpan( 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000 )             1085.11:06:40
//       TimeSpan( 1000, -2000, -3000, -4000 )           914.12:53:20
//       TimeSpan( 999999, 999999, 999999, 999999 )  1042371.15:25:39
