# TimeSpan.Seconds Property

## Definition

Gets the seconds component of the time interval represented by the current TimeSpan structure.

``````public:
property int Seconds { int get(); };``````
``public int Seconds { get; }``
``member this.Seconds : int``
``Public ReadOnly Property Seconds As Integer``

#### Property Value

The second component of the current TimeSpan structure. The return value ranges from -59 through 59.

## Examples

The following example creates several TimeSpan objects and displays the Seconds property of each.

## Remarks

A TimeSpan value can be represented as [-]d.hh:mm:ss.ff, where the optional minus sign indicates a negative time interval, the d component is days, hh is hours as measured on a 24-hour clock, mm is minutes, ss is seconds, and ff is fractions of a second. The value of the Seconds property is the seconds component, ss.

The Seconds property represents whole seconds, whereas the TotalSeconds property represents whole and fractional seconds.
