TimeSpan has a very specific meaning in .NET, there is a datatype for it. Are you sure that's what you're asking for? Or do you mean "date/time data entry?"

I agree but TimeSpan is mapped to time(7) data type in sql server. It will just be used for time only calculations.

One problem you're going to run into is that the TimeSpan type represents an interval of time, it has no concept of am/pm. If you're trying to represent a time-of-day you've picked the incorrect type. You'll probably need to use a datetime and then apply an editor mask so only the time portion shows up and is entered.
