I have generated two sets of long integers corresponding to dates:
Year1, Month1, Day1
Year2, Month2, Day2
I would like to use these to generate a new variable containing the days and one containing the months elapsed between these two dates.
I was looking into C# documentation, but I can’t seem to make the DateTime calculations required.
Can anyone help me out?
date difference is of class TimeSpan documented here:
To construct the DateTime from three components, use the DateTime constructor with Year, Month, and Day as documented here:
Note that you will need to cast your longs to ints:
For days difference use the TotalDays property of a TimeSpan object.
There is no TotalMonths property for the reasons of ambiguity explained here:
tdays=((new DateTime((int)year_int, (int)month_int, (int)day_int))
- (new DateTime((int)year_final_nc, (int)month_final_nc, (int)day_final_nc))).TotalDays
thanks so much for your answer!
I think I’m getting close: this is what I have in my variable now
DateTime dateint = DateTime((int)year_int, (int)month_int, (int)day_int);
DateTime datebirth = DateTime((int)year_final_nc, (int)month_final_nc, (int)day_final_nc);
TimeSpan interval = dateint - datebirth;
double result = interval.TotalDays;
This still gives an error in SS. When I try to compile this in C#, I get the following:
A namespace cannot directly contain members such as fields or methods
Can you help? I really have no experience in C#, so this might be really trivial.
