asked on

I am trying to get a count of the max value of times where the times intersect.

The expected result that I want need from the code example below should be 4.

There are a total of 8 times, there are 6 values that intersect in total, a group of 4, and a group of 2.

What I am trying to get is the max value of intersections but just cant get it to work.

This is the code as it stands at the moment.

This is the output of the times object

I would be very grateful if someone can help me get the Max value of the intersections.

Thanks

```
void Main()
{
var times = new List<Times> {
new Times
{
Start = DateTime.Now,
End = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(10)
},
new Times
{
Start = DateTime.Now,
End = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(10)
},
new Times
{
Start = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(2),
End = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(10)
},
new Times
{
Start = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(15),
End = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(35)
},
new Times
{
Start = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(25),
End = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(42)
},
new Times
{
Start = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(43),
End = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(50)
},
new Times
{
Start = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(55),
End = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(89)
},
new Times
{
Start = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(2),
End = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(12)
}
};
times.OrderBy(x => x.Start);
var overlappingEvents =
(
from e1 in times
where times
.Where(e2 => e1 != e2)
.Where(e2 => e1.Start <= e2.End)
.Where(e2 => e1.End >= e2.Start)
.Any()
select e1).ToList();
overlappingEvents.OrderBy(x => x.Start);
overlappingEvents.Distinct().OrderBy(x => x.Start);
overlappingEvents.Distinct().OrderBy(x => x.Start).Count();
}
public class Times
{
public DateTime Start { get; set; }
public DateTime End { get; set; }
}
```

This is the output of the times object

```
Start | End
05/04/2017 08:38:57 | 05/04/2017 08:48:57
05/04/2017 08:38:57 | 05/04/2017 08:48:57
05/04/2017 08:40:57 | 05/04/2017 08:48:57
05/04/2017 08:40:57 | 05/04/2017 08:50:57
05/04/2017 08:53:57 | 05/04/2017 09:13:57
05/04/2017 09:03:57 | 05/04/2017 09:20:57
05/04/2017 09:21:57 | 05/04/2017 09:28:57
05/04/2017 09:33:57 | 05/04/2017 10:07:57
This is the output of the overlapping object ( I have added the line where the intersect stops)
Start | End
05/04/2017 08:38:57 | 05/04/2017 08:48:57
05/04/2017 08:38:57 | 05/04/2017 08:48:57
05/04/2017 08:40:57 | 05/04/2017 08:48:57
05/04/2017 08:40:57 | 05/04/2017 08:50:57

```

I would be very grateful if someone can help me get the Max value of the intersections.
