TimeSpan.FromTicks() Method in C#


The TimeSpan.FromTicks() method in C# is used to return a TimeSpan that represents a specified time, where the specification is in units of ticks.

Syntax

The syntax is as follows -

public static TimeSpan FromTicks (long val);

Above, the parameter val is the number of ticks that represent a time.

Example

Let us now see an example -

 Live Demo

using System;
public class Demo {
   public static void Main() {
      TimeSpan span1 = TimeSpan.FromTicks(18768768);
      TimeSpan span2 = new TimeSpan(-9, 45, 50);
      TimeSpan span3 = TimeSpan.FromHours(5);
      TimeSpan span4 = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(10000);
      TimeSpan span5 = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(2);
      TimeSpan span6 = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(20);
      Console.WriteLine("TimeSpan1 = "+span1);
      Console.WriteLine("TimeSpan2 = "+span2);
      Console.WriteLine("TimeSpan3 = "+span3);
      Console.WriteLine("TimeSpan4 = "+span4);
      Console.WriteLine("TimeSpan5 = "+span5);
      Console.WriteLine("Result (Comparison of span1 and span2) = "+TimeSpan.Compare(span1, span2));
      Console.WriteLine("Result (Comparison of span2 and span3) = "+TimeSpan.Compare(span2, span3));
      Console.WriteLine("Result (Comparison of span1 and span3) = "+TimeSpan.Compare(span1, span3));
      Console.WriteLine("Result (Comparison of span3 and span4) = "+TimeSpan.Compare(span3, span4));
      Console.WriteLine("Result (Comparison of span4 and span5) = "+TimeSpan.Compare(span4, span5));
   }
}

Output

This will produce the following output -

TimeSpan1 = 00:00:01.8768768
TimeSpan2 = -08:14:10
TimeSpan3 = 05:00:00
TimeSpan4 = 00:00:10
TimeSpan5 = 00:02:00
Result (Comparison of span1 and span2) = 1
Result (Comparison of span2 and span3) = -1
Result (Comparison of span1 and span3) = -1
Result (Comparison of span3 and span4) = 1
Result (Comparison of span4 and span5) = -1

Example

Let us now see another example -

 Live Demo

using System;
public class Demo {
   public static void Main() {
      TimeSpan span1 = TimeSpan.FromTicks(1);
      TimeSpan span2 = new TimeSpan(1);
      TimeSpan span3 = TimeSpan.FromHours(1);
      TimeSpan span4 = TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(1);
      TimeSpan span5 = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(1);
      TimeSpan span6 = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(1);
      Console.WriteLine("TimeSpan1 = "+span1);
      Console.WriteLine("TimeSpan2 = "+span2);
      Console.WriteLine("TimeSpan3 = "+span3);
      Console.WriteLine("TimeSpan4 = "+span4);
      Console.WriteLine("TimeSpan5 = "+span5);
      Console.WriteLine("Result (Comparison of span1 and span2) = "+TimeSpan.Compare(span1, span2));
      Console.WriteLine("Result (Comparison of span2 and span3) = "+TimeSpan.Compare(span2, span3));
      Console.WriteLine("Result (Comparison of span1 and span3) = "+TimeSpan.Compare(span1, span3));
      Console.WriteLine("Result (Comparison of span3 and span4) = "+TimeSpan.Compare(span3, span4));
      Console.WriteLine("Result (Comparison of span4 and span5) = "+TimeSpan.Compare(span4, span5));
   }
}

Output

TimeSpan1 = 00:00:00.0000001
TimeSpan2 = 00:00:00.0000001
TimeSpan3 = 01:00:00
TimeSpan4 = 00:00:00.0010000
TimeSpan5 = 00:01:00
Result (Comparison of span1 and span2) = 0
Result (Comparison of span2 and span3) = -1
Result (Comparison of span1 and span3) = -1
Result (Comparison of span3 and span4) = 1
Result (Comparison of span4 and span5) = -1
