How would I use a TimeSpan Duration in a LINQ Where clause

I have a LINQ statement where I need to find the first row in a dictionary where the difference between a Dictionary item date and a reference time is less than 2 minutes.

 legSlot = (From l As MissionLeg In missionCollection(missionKey)
                 Where l.DestIcao = eventRef.GeoId And 
                (l.DepartTime - eventRef.EventDateTime.AddHours(-eventRef.FlightTime)) < TimeSpan.FromMinutes(2)
                 Select l).FirstOrDefault()

Open in new window


The code above works fine when l.DepartTime is greater than eventRef.EventDateTime.AddHours(-eventRef.FlightTime))

I tried the following modification:

  (l.DepartTime - eventRef.EventDateTime.AddHours(-eventRef.FlightTime)).Value.Duration() < TimeSpan.FromMinutes(2)

Open in new window


But this throws errors.

Is there another way to get the absolute value of the duration between two dates?

Hi MDKIMZEY;

Try it like this.

legSlot = (From l As MissionLeg In missionCollection(missionKey)
           Where l.DestIcao = eventRef.GeoId And 
                 (TimeSpan.FromTicks(l.DepartTime.Ticks - eventRef.EventDateTime.AddHours(-eventRef.FlightTime).Ticks)) < TimeSpan.FromMinutes(2)
                 Select l).FirstOrDefault()

Open in new window
