    Hello all
    For a purpose I want to act on change in seconds from 00 to 59 .. Hours and minutes are ignored. This means
    11:12:16 equals 10:35:16
    Any idea?

    DateTime.GetSeconds should do the trick.

    I was going to say: watch out for changes at the start and end of daylight savings... but you should be ok because I believe all adjustments are a whole number of minutes (usually one hour).

    Depending on your application, you might have to watch out for the leap second that happens every few years. Although leap seconds are added, not skipped, and thus the worst that might happen is that you launch your rockets (or whatever it is you're doing) twice instead of once.

    You could calculate it from DateTime.Now, by dividing by 1000 (convert ms to s) and then modulus 60 (to "wrap it around" within 0..59), eg:
    SecondOfMinute = (DateTime.Now / 1000Mod 60
