How to compare DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay to TImespan

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have a web service that need to run at a specific time each day. Within one of my events, I have the following if condition:

if (DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay.Equals(new TimeSpan(16, 00, 00)))
    //Do Something

Open in new window

As you can see, I want my code within my IF condition to fire at 16:00. For some reason, the condition is never true.

I have manually output DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay.Hours and DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay.Minutes to ensure I getting the correct minutes and hours.

Am I missing something?
