Hi there,

Can anybody tell me how to find out if the current time using NOW is greater than a certain time

if ( DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(-5).ToShortTimeString() >= thisMarket.OpenTime.ToShortTimeString()  )

 thisMarket.OpenTime is DateTime and contains 08:15

I need for it to return true if it is anywhere from 08:10 (notice the -5) to 00:00

I hope someone can help

Thanks in advance

ian

double diff = thisMarket.OpenTime.TimeOfDay.TotalSeconds - DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay.TotalSeconds;

(diff > 0 and diff <= 60*5)   returns true if the time is between 8:10 to 8:15

(diff > 0 and diff > 60*5) returns true if the time is between 0:00 to 8:10

Don't compare strings - this is a source of errors. You can just compare the times. Also you need to add 5, not subtract them, if you are searching for times between 8:10 and 00:00

if (DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(5).TimeOfDay >= thisMarket.OpenTime.TimeOfDay)
  // Do whatever you want
