Examples

The following example enumerates the time zones found on the local computer and displays transition time information for all floating-date transitions. The time information includes the day of the week on which the time change occurs.

   Fourth = 4,
   Last = 5

Remarks

The DayOfWeek property returns a valid value only if the IsFixedDateRule property is false.

The DayOfWeek property indicates the day of the week on which a floating-date rule is applied (for example, the second Sunday of November). In contrast, the Day property indicates the day of the month on which a fixed-date rule is applied (for example, April 15).
