minutes and seconds?

Thanks,

How about a couple of operators instead?

seconds \ 60 = minutes
seconds Mod 60 = seconds

Or

dim t as new TimeSpan(0,0,135)

t.Minutes
t.Seconds

That works fine.

I was just interested to see if there was a function that did it as part of
an object.

Yes. You would have to put the values into a DateTime object and use the
..Minutes and .Seconds properties. But my method is more efficient.

I agree.

Since there isn't much to it (I also put a Cint around the minutes
calculation), there is really no reason to set up a separate object to
handle it.

No need for a CInt around anything. The VB.Net "\" operator returns an
integer.

I didn't know about that one.

You're right. It works fine that way. I just automatically used "/".
