Treying to convert string to TimeSpan in C#

Is there a reason why this doesn't work ? It says its not recognize as a valid TimeSpan. In the end I need to insert into a SQL Server time(7) field. How to do ? Any advice would be most appreciated.

TimeSpan timeSpanCompTime = new System.TimeSpan();
timeSpanCompTime=TimeSpan.Parse("08:00 AM");

Use DateTime.Parse and grab the value of TimeOfDay from the resulting DateTime object.

e.g.

TimeSpan timeSpanCompTime = new System.TimeSpan();
timeSpanCompTime=DateTime.Parse("08:00 AM").TimeOfDay;

Open in new window

Hi Jason,

I don't have access to an IDE right now but a TimeSpan will not take 8.00 AM as a valid parameter. It has to be a timespan, and you are specifyting time itself.

It can be 8 hours it can not be 8.00 AM.
