Examples

The following example defines a method named DisplayDateWithTimeZoneName that uses the IsDaylightSavingTime(DateTime) method to determine whether to display a time zone's standard time name or daylight saving time name.

private void DisplayDateWithTimeZoneName(DateTime date1, TimeZoneInfo timeZone)
{
   Console.WriteLine("The time is {0:t} on {0:d} {1}", 
                     date1, 
                     timeZone.IsDaylightSavingTime(date1) ?
                         timeZone.DaylightName : timeZone.StandardName);   
}
// The example displays output similar to the following:
//    The time is 1:00 AM on 4/2/2006 Pacific Standard Time   
Private Sub DisplayDateWithTimeZoneName(date1 As Date, timeZone As TimeZoneInfo)
   Console.WriteLine("The time is {0:t} on {0:d} {1}", _
                     date1, _
                     IIf(timeZone.IsDaylightSavingTime(date1), _
                         timezone.DaylightName, timezone.StandardName))   
End Sub
' The example displays output similar to the following:
'    The time is 1:00 AM on 4/2/2006 Pacific Standard Time   

Remarks

The display name is localized based on the culture installed with the Windows operating system.

The StandardName property is identical to the StandardName property of the TimeZone class.

If the operating system language is English, the value of the StandardName property is usually, but not always, identical to that of the Id property.
