Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts
In C# you could do something lie this"
DateTime startTime = DateTime.Now;
 DateTime endTime = DateTime.Now.AddSeconds( 75 );
 TimeSpan span = endTime.Subtract ( startTime );
 Console.WriteLine( "Time Difference (seconds): " + span.Seconds );
 Console.WriteLine( "Time Difference (minutes): " + span.Minutes );
 Console.WriteLine( "Time Difference (hours): " + span.Hours );
 Console.WriteLine( "Time Difference (days): " + span.Days );
