I'm totalling up columns in a GridView to display in the footer, however, the column is the Call Duration of a phone call and the overall total will be in seconds.  However, I need to display it as hours:minutes:seconds as sometimes the total will be > 60 seconds and maybe even more than 3600 seconds. Is there an easy way to do this using myStringSeconds.ToString(xxxxx)??
