Time functions

 P: n/a A program takes a number of entries and multiplies that number by 2.5 (representing 2 and a half minutes per entry). This gives me a number that I want to display the actual minutes and seconds. Is there a built in function in VB .Net to take that number and convert to minutes/seconds? Thanks for the information.

 P: n/a Brad, Yes, multiply it by 150 instead of 2.5 than you can write. Messagebox.show(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(3 * 150).ToString()) I hope this helps, Cor Nov 21 '05 #2

The number is already in minutes, isn't it? You may want to take a look at 'TimeSpan' and 'DateTime' for date/time calculations and formatting. -- M S Herfried K. Wagner M V P V B Nov 21 '05 #3

 P: n/a Look at the TimeSpan for example this gives you how long 100000 seconds is: Dim ts As New TimeSpan(0, 0, 100000) MsgBox(ts.ToString) hth Greetz Peter -- Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots.
