Convert integer to datetime and back again

I would like to convert 28 to 28days in date time format (i.e. 28:00:00:00.0000000).

The reason is i have a timespan and i need to divide it by an integer and check if the result is a whole number.

Thanks in advance

Something like this:

DateTime firstOfTheMonth = new DateTime(2014, 2, 1);
DateTime twentyEighthOfTheMonth = new DateTime(2014, 2, 28);

TimeSpan twentyEightDays = new TimeSpan(twentyEighthOfTheMonth.ticks - firstOfTheMonth.ticks);

Open in new window


I think that will work. Maybe usee 2014, 2, 29 for a full 28-days later?

Sorry i don;t think i have explained myself too well.

a = 32:10:12:07.000000 (32days / 10hrs / 12 mins / 7 secs / 0 milli seconds) its a datetime
b = 28 its an integer

i need to divide a by b and then check if the number is a whole number, the problem at the moment is i have two different types datetime + integer and one will not divide by the other

If you are only interested in the day part, then the following will do it:

a.Day / b

That would work is the difference between my two dates is always displayed in days, if that possible?

you can make b a decimal to start with;
This ensures that the solution is a decimal to.


so 3 days divided by integer 2 is 1
and 3 days divided by decimal 2 is 1.5


hope to have helped
