  • Use the System.TimeSpan structure.  Create a new one with the appropriate constructor (in the case of your example above,

    new TimeSpan(0, 6, 40),

    then extract the total seconds using the TotalSeconds property.

    Complete information in the MSDN documentation.

    Thanks for your post.

    However, this forum is for Interoperability purposes.

    Assuming you are using C#, I would suggest that you post your question in a more appropriate forum as:
