I am using to dropdownlist boxes to allow users to select a start and end time.  I need to know the delta between the two.

so if ddlStart = 2:00 pm and ddlEnd = 3:00 pm then I need the delta 1 returned.
if however ddlStart = 2:00 pm and ddlEnd = 3:45 pm then I need the delta 1.75 returned.

Any ideas?

string ddlStart = "2:00 PM";
string ddlEnd = "3:45 PM";
TimeSpan start = DateTime.Parse(ddlStart).TimeOfDay;
TimeSpan end = DateTime.Parse(ddlEnd).TimeOfDay;
TimeSpan diff = end - start;
double delta = diff.Hours + (diff.Minutes / 60D);

Do you have those 2 values in a DateTime or TimeSpan object?

If so, its as simple as:

 //2:00 PM
var ddlStart = new DateTime(1900, 1, 1, 14, 0, 0);
//3:45 PM
var ddlEnd = new DateTime(1900, 1, 1, 15, 45, 0);

var Delta = ddlEnd.Subtract(ddlStart).TotalHours;
//Delta = 1.75
