DateTime.AddSeconds() Method in C#

This method is used to return a new DateTime that adds the specified number of seconds to the value of this instance.

Syntax:

public DateTime AddSeconds (double value);

Here, value is a number of whole and fractional seconds. The value parameter can be negative or positive.



Return Value: This method returns an object whose value is the sum of the date and time represented by this instance and the number of seconds represented by value.

Exception: This method will throw ArgumentOutOfRangeException if the resulting DateTime is less than MinValue or greater than MaxValue.

Below programs illustrate the use of the above-discussed method:

// C# program to demonstrate the
// DateTime.AddSeconds(Double) Method
using System;
  
class GFG {
  
// Main Method
public static void Main()
{
      
    // defining the format of date
    string dateFormat = "MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss";
  
    // Creating a DateTime object and 
    // taking a particular date and time
    DateTime d1 = new DateTime(2018, 9, 7, 7, 0, 0);
  
    Console.WriteLine("Original date: {0}",
                  d1.ToString(dateFormat));
  
    // Taking seconds
    int sec = 30;
  
    // using method
    DateTime d2 = d1.AddSeconds(sec);
  
    Console.WriteLine("After Using Method: {0}",
                    d2.ToString(dateFormat));
}
}

Output:

Original date: 09/07/2018 07:00:00
After Using Method: 09/07/2018 07:00:30

Runtime Error:

Unhandled Exception:
System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: The added or subtracted value results in an un-representable DateTime.
Parameter name: value

Note:

  • This method does not change the value of this DateTime. Instead, it returns a new DateTime whose value is the result of this operation.
  • The fractional part of the value is the fractional part of a minute. For example, 7.5 is equivalent to 7 minutes, 30 seconds, 0 milliseconds, and 0 ticks.
  • The value parameter is rounded to the nearest millisecond.
