C# Sharp Exercises: Display the number of ticks TimeSpan object using the Ticks property

C# Sharp DateTime : Exercise-6 with Solution

Write a C# Sharp program to display the number of ticks that have elapsed since the beginning of the twenty-first century and to instantiate a TimeSpan object using the Ticks property.

Note: The TimeSpan object is then used to display the elapsed time using several other time intervals.

Sample Solution:-

C# Sharp Code:

using System;
using System.Globalization;

public class Example6
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      DateTime localDate = DateTime.Now;
      DateTime utcDate = DateTime.UtcNow;
      String[] cultureNames = { "en-JM", "en-NZ", "fr-BE",
                                "de-CH", "nl-NL" } ;

      foreach (var cultureName in cultureNames) {
         var culture = new CultureInfo(cultureName);
         Console.WriteLine("{0}:", culture.NativeName);
         Console.WriteLine("   Local date and time: {0}, {1:G}",
                           localDate.ToString(culture), localDate.Kind);
         Console.WriteLine("   UTC date and time: {0}, {1:G}\n",
                           utcDate.ToString(culture), utcDate.Kind);
      }
   }
}
