C# time in microseconds

You can use "ffffff" in a format string to represent microseconds:


To convert a number of ticks to microseconds, just use:

long microseconds = ticks / (TimeSpan.TicksPerMillisecond / 1000);

If these don’t help you, please provide more information about exactly what you’re trying to do.

EDIT: I originally multiplied ticks by 1000 to avoid losing accuracy when dividing TimeSpan.TicksPerMillisecond by 1000. However, It turns out that the TicksPerMillisecond is actually a constant value of 10,000 – so you can divide by 1000 with no problem, and in fact we could just use:

const long TicksPerMicrosecond = 10;


long microseconds = ticks / TicksPerMicrosecond;
