DateTime To Float

I have a Delphi DateTime in the registry represented as a float (i.e 90074.3829327199).  The problem is that I need to take a DateTime in C# and represent it in the same fashion.  Does anyone know how to do this?

I'm not 100% sure about it, but it sounds like it's an OLE Automation date. If that's the case the methods ToOADate and FromOADate of the DateTime class might be of use.
See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/system.datetime.tooadate%28v=VS.80%29.aspx and http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.datetime.fromoadate%28VS.80%29.aspx for details.

Hope that helps.

Hello
I once solved a similar problem by removing the decimal character so it ends up as an "Int64" (aka "long") type.
That way, you can use it as "ticks" when creating the DateTime.

Int64 ticks = createTicksFromValue(90074.3829327199);  // making it into 900743829327199
DateTime mydate = new DateTime(ticks);

But I'm not sure if this is the right approach for this, but I think it's worth mentioning :-)
