Hello,

I am trying to display the total time span in seconds for a report with two parameters; From (DateTime) and To (DateTime). The subtraction between two DateTime objects is a TimeSpan object, but the following expression fails, claiming that it cannot interpret '.':

=(Parameters.To.Value-Parameters.From.Value).TotalSeconds

 

Is there an alternative syntax I can use, or is this kind of expression just not supported? 

 

Best regards, 

Magnus

Hi Magnus,

You can use an expression as follows, where variable are of DateTime type:
= Parameters.Parameter2.Value.Subtract(Parameters.Parameter1.Value)

The expression uses the access to Datetime methods, Subtract method in the example.
