Binding TimeSpan larger than 24 hours

I have a WebApi Controller like this:

public async Task<IHttpActionResult> PutSomeValue(TimeSpan ts){ ... }

If I PUT this, it binds as 23 hours:

"ts": "23:00:00"

But if I PUT this, it binds as 24 days:

"ts": "24:00:00"

And if I PUT this, it fails with a 400:

"ts": "24:30:00"

How can I correct this?


Take a look at TimeSpan.Parse docs- they show the full format spec. Looks like 12.12:12:12 should give you 12d 12h 12m 12s.
