I assume that this represents 1 min. Either way split the string and convert to time. HTH.

im not sure if this is what you want

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. string s = "00:01:00";
  2. DateTime d = DateTime.Parse(s);
  3. Response.Write(d.ToShortTimeString());
this will return 12:01 AM

I have something similar to this but in my case this will not work. I have a text field storing the value in mins in this format 000100 representing 1 min.

I need to break this into a time reference 00:01:00 so that I can use it to calculate total time spent.

I have tried several different date/time functions but they all add the date, which I do not need.

question is: is there a way to convert this text into a time only field ?

i.e. Duration time/duration
005005 ... 00:50:05
000905 ... 00:09:05
001500 ... 00:15:00

total 01:14:10

thanks for you help!

TimeSpan object.
(Note: They inter-twine very well with the DateTime object)
But you should be able to create a timespan object from a number of secods or minutes, or whatever
