c# - How to add minutes to DateTime

DateTime AddMinutes() Method
The following asp.net c# example code demonstrate us how can we add minutes to a DateTime object programmatically at run time. .Net framework's DateTime.AddMinutes() method allow us to add one more more minutes with a date time object.

DateTime.AddMinutes() method exists in System namespace. AddMinutes() method have a required parameter named 'value'. This 'value' parameter value data type is System.Double which represent a number of whole and fractional minutes. This is very interesting that the 'value' parameter value can be negative or positive. So, technically we can also subtract minutes from a DateTime object.

AddMinutes() method does not modify/change the provided DateTime object instead it return a new DateTime object that is the result of this operation.
