Usage

Creates a date-time object (Java Double) that should be used only to add and subtract from other date-time objects or with the cfquery cachedWithin attribute.If you use the cachedWithin attribute of cfquery, and the original query date falls within the time span you define, cached query data is used. In this case, the CreateTimeSpan function is used to define a period of time from the present backwards. The cachedWithin attribute takes effect only if you enable query caching in the ColdFusion Administrator. For more information, see cfquery.

Example

<cfscript>
    hours = 10;
    minutes= 09;
    seconds= 46;
    days = 12;
    myTime=CreateTimeSpan(days,hours,minutes,seconds)
    writeOutput("Time is : " & myTime)
</cfscript>

Output

TimeSpan is : 12.4234490741
