Try the following:
string timeElapsed =  String.Format("{0} Hours, {1} Minutes, {2} Seconds", Math.Floor(duration.TotalHours), Math.Floor(duration.TotalMinutes), Math.Floor(duration.TotalSeconds);

Hi,

U can use substring instead, i think there is no format as such. we need to use regex.
string ealpsed = watch.Elapsed.Duration().ToString().Substring(0,11)

There's several ways you could do this, but here's the ones that jump to mind:

var sw = new Stopwatch();

sw.Start();
System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(1000);
sw.Stop();

Console.WriteLine(sw.Elapsed.TotalMilliseconds.ToString("N2"));
Console.WriteLine(Math.Round(sw.Elapsed.TotalMilliseconds, 2));
Console.WriteLine(String.Format("{0:0.00}", sw.Elapsed.TotalMilliseconds));

Hi naman,

I use :
           MessageBox.Show("Time elapse: Min,Secs" + String.Format("{0:0.##}", ts.TotalMinutes.ToString()) + "," + String.Format("{0:0.##}", ts.TotalSeconds.ToString()));

But it is nor working.

JT

Don't call "ToString()" on TotalMinutes.
