Description Simeon 2016-12-05 12:16:56 UTC
I am trying to run my .Net MVC project on Mac OS X. I am trying to store a model with Timespan property in sql server 2008 database.But I am keep getting an error, when code is trying to store a value in timespan property.

"The parameter data type of System.TimeSpan is invalid."

I ran same project in windows ,connecting to same sql server and it works just fine.

Trying to debug the issue, I created a simple MVC project via xamarim studio. It uses entity framework code first approach and has one class:

	public class User
		public User()
		public int Id { get; set; }
		public string Name { get; set; }
		public TimeSpan? TheTime { get; set; }

In the home controller, I am doing that:

	                var db = new SchoolContext();
			var user = new User();
			user.Name = "aaaa";
			//user.TheTime = new TimeSpan(1,2,3);

The code runs fine unless I am uncomment the line with with "user.TheTime".
Also, the code runs fine in windows. Usual operations with the timespan are OK.

Here is full error - http://pastebin.com/0Y3eC5Tc

I examined the source code of System.Data.SqlClient.SqlParameter. I can't see any mentioning of Timespan type.
So, I added [Column(TypeName = "time")] to the class  User.TheTime property, but code throws same error in InferSqlType method.
