TimeSpan.GetHashCode Method

Returns a hash code for this instance.

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

public override int GetHashCode ()
public int GetHashCode ()
public override function GetHashCode () : int

Return Value

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

// Example for the TimeSpan.GetHashCode( ) method.
using System;

class GetHashCode
{
    static void DisplayHashCode( TimeSpan interval )
    {
        // Create a hash code and a string representation of 
        // the TimeSpan parameter.
        string  timeInterval = interval.ToString( );
        int     hashCode = interval.GetHashCode( );

        // Pad the end of the TimeSpan string with spaces if it 
        // does not contain milliseconds.
        int pIndex = timeInterval.IndexOf( ':' );
        pIndex = timeInterval.IndexOf( '.', pIndex );
        if( pIndex < 0 )   timeInterval += "        ";

        Console.WriteLine( "{0,22}   0x{1:X8}, {1}", 
            timeInterval, hashCode );
    }

    static void Main( )
    {
        Console.WriteLine(
            "This example of TimeSpan.GetHashCode( ) generates " +
            "the following \noutput, which displays " +
            "the hash codes of representative TimeSpan \n" +
            "objects in hexadecimal and decimal formats.\n" );
        Console.WriteLine( "{0,22}   {1,10}",

        DisplayHashCode( new TimeSpan( 1, 0, 0 ) );
        DisplayHashCode( new TimeSpan( 36000000001 ) );

        DisplayHashCode( new TimeSpan( 1, 0, 0, 0, 1 ) );
        DisplayHashCode( new TimeSpan( 1, 0, 0, 1 ) );
        DisplayHashCode( new TimeSpan( 100, 0, 0, 0 ) );
        DisplayHashCode( new TimeSpan( 100, 0, 0, 0, 1 ) );
        DisplayHashCode( new TimeSpan( 100, 0, 0, 1 ) );
    }
