HJI,

pls try
        DateTime a = new DateTime(2010, 05, 12, 11, 53, 00);
        DateTime b = new DateTime(2010, 05, 12, 12, 10, 00);
        Console.WriteLine(b.Subtract(a).TotalMinutes);

Open in new window

Try..

Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim a As DateTime = "2016/01/01 11:53"
        Dim b As DateTime = "2016/01/01 12:10"
        Dim minutesDiff As Integer = DateDiff(DateInterval.Minute, a, b)
End Sub

Open in new window


Output

17 minutes

No points please, and not that it may matter in your case, but note that TotalMinutes returns a decimal value of minutes when (sub)seconds are present, while DateDiff returns an integer value based on the Minute component of the two date values.

you could use then
        DateTime a = new DateTime(2010, 05, 12, 11, 53, 00);
        DateTime b = new DateTime(2010, 05, 12, 12, 10, 00);
        Console.WriteLine(Math.Truncate(b.Subtract(a).TotalMinutes));
