DateTimeOffset.UtcDateTime DateTimeOffset.UtcDateTime DateTimeOffset.UtcDateTime DateTimeOffset.UtcDateTime Property

Definition

Gets a DateTime value that represents the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) date and time of the current DateTimeOffset object.

public:
 property DateTime UtcDateTime { DateTime get(); };
public DateTime UtcDateTime { get; }
member this.UtcDateTime : DateTime
Public ReadOnly Property UtcDateTime As DateTime

Property Value

The Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) date and time of the current DateTimeOffset object.

Examples

The following example shows how to use of the UtcDateTime property to display a DateTimeOffset value and its corresponding UTC time.

DateTimeOffset offsetTime = new DateTimeOffset(2007, 11, 25, 11, 14, 00, 
                            new TimeSpan(3, 0, 0));
Console.WriteLine("{0} is equivalent to {1} {2}", 
                  offsetTime.ToString(), 
                  offsetTime.UtcDateTime.ToString(), 
                  offsetTime.UtcDateTime.Kind.ToString());      
// The example displays the following output:
//       11/25/2007 11:14:00 AM +03:00 is equivalent to 11/25/2007 8:14:00 AM Utc      
Dim offsetTime As New DateTimeOffset(#11/25/2007 11:14AM#, _
                  New TimeSpan(3, 0, 0))
Console.WriteLine("{0} is equivalent to {1} {2}", _
                  offsetTime.ToString(), _
                  offsetTime.UtcDateTime.ToString(), _
                  offsetTime.UtcDateTime.Kind.ToString())      
' The example displays the following output:
'       11/25/2007 11:14:00 AM +03:00 is equivalent to 11/25/2007 8:14:00 AM Utc      

Remarks

The UtcDateTime property performs a dual conversion:

  • It converts the date and time of the current DateTimeOffset object to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The conversion is performed by subtracting the value of the Offset property from the date and time of the current DateTimeOffset object.

  • It converts the DateTimeOffset value to a DateTime value.

The Kind property of the returned DateTime value is set to DateTimeKind.Utc.

Retrieving the value of the UtcDateTime property is equivalent to calling the current DateTimeOffset object's ToUniversalTime.DateTime property, except that the Kind property of the latter DateTime value is DateTimeKind.Unspecified.
