TimeSpan.GetHashCode Method ()

 
System_CAPS_noteNote

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Returns a hash code for this instance.

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

Public Overrides Function GetHashCode As Integer

Return Value

Type: System.Int32

A 32-bit signed integer hash code.

Two TimeSpan objects might have the same hash code even though they represent different time values.

The following example generates the hash codes of several TimeSpan objects using the GetHashCode method.

' Example for the TimeSpan.GetHashCode( ) method.

        ' Pad the end of the TimeSpan string with spaces if it 
        ' does not contain milliseconds.
        Dim pIndex As Integer = timeInterval.IndexOf( ":"c )
        pIndex = timeInterval.IndexOf( "."c, pIndex )
