Subtract(Duration)

Subtracts specified duration from this duration instance.

public Duration Subtract(Duration d)
Parameter Type Description
d Duration the specified Duration instance to subtract from this instance.

Return Value

New duration object that represents the value of this instance minus the specified duration value.

Examples

Shows how to change a duration of tasks.

var project = new Project(DataDir + "TaskDurations.mpp");

// get a task
var task1 = project.RootTask.Children.GetById(1);

// update the task duration
var duration1 = task1.Get(Tsk.Duration);

// subtract one day to the task 1
duration1 = duration1.Subtract(project.GetDuration(1, TimeUnitType.Day));

// set a new duration to the task
task1.Set(Tsk.Duration, duration1);
Console.WriteLine("The duration of task 1: " + task1.Get(Tsk.Duration));

// get another task
var task2 = project.RootTask.Children.GetById(2);
var duration2 = task2.Get(Tsk.Duration);

// change the duration by using actual time unit type
Console.WriteLine("The time unit of duration: " + duration2.TimeUnit);
duration2 = duration2.Subtract(1d /* the time unit type of duration2 will be used */);

// set a new duration to the task
task2.Set(Tsk.Duration, duration2);
Console.WriteLine("The duration of task 2: " + task2.Get(Tsk.Duration));
