member this.DateTime : DateTime
Public ReadOnly Property DateTime As DateTime

Property Value

Examples

The following example illustrates the use of the DateTime property to convert the time returned by the Now and UtcNow properties to DateTime values.

DateTimeOffset offsetDate; 
DateTime regularDate;

offsetDate = DateTimeOffset.Now;
regularDate = offsetDate.DateTime;
Console.WriteLine("{0} converts to {1}, Kind {2}.", 
                  offsetDate.ToString(), 
                  regularDate,  
                  regularDate.Kind);
               
offsetDate = DateTimeOffset.UtcNow;
regularDate = offsetDate.DateTime;
Console.WriteLine("{0} converts to {1}, Kind {2}.", 
                  offsetDate.ToString(), 
                  regularDate, 
                  regularDate.Kind);
// If run on 3/6/2007 at 17:11, produces the following output:
//
//   3/6/2007 5:11:22 PM -08:00 converts to 3/6/2007 5:11:22 PM, Kind Unspecified.
//   3/7/2007 1:11:22 AM +00:00 converts to 3/7/2007 1:11:22 AM, Kind Unspecified.                        
Dim offsetDate As DateTimeOffset 
Dim regularDate As Date

offsetDate = DateTimeOffset.Now
regularDate = offsetDate.DateTime
Console.WriteLine("{0} converts to {1}, Kind {2}.", _
                  offsetDate.ToString(), _
                  regularDate, _ 
                  regularDate.Kind)
               
offsetDate = DateTimeOffset.UtcNow
regularDate = offsetDate.DateTime
Console.WriteLine("{0} converts to {1}, Kind {2}.", _
                  offsetDate.ToString(), _
                  regularDate, _
                  regularDate.Kind)
' If run on 3/6/2007 at 17:11, produces the following output:
'
'   3/6/2007 5:11:22 PM -08:00 converts to 3/6/2007 5:11:22 PM, Kind Unspecified.
'   3/7/2007 1:11:22 AM +00:00 converts to 3/7/2007 1:11:22 AM, Kind Unspecified.                        

Remarks

The DateTime property is not affected by the value of the Offset property.

This property returns both the date and the time component of a DateTimeOffset object, which makes it useful for performing DateTimeOffset to DateTime conversion. For example, if the DateTimeOffset object has a date and time value of "1/12/07 4:01pm + 7:30", the property returns a date of "1/12/07 4:01pm".

The value of the DateTime.Kind property of the returned DateTime object is DateTimeKind.Unspecified.
