Remarks

The TimeZoneInfo.AdjustmentRule class defines the effective start and end dates of a particular time change to and from daylight saving time, respectively, as well as its delta (the exact amount by which the adjustment causes the time zone's standard time to change). In addition, two properties return TimeZoneInfo.TransitionTime objects that define when each transition to and from standard time occurs.

Note

An instance of the TimeZoneInfo.AdjustmentRule class is immutable. Once an object has been created, its values cannot be modified.

To create a TimeZoneInfo.AdjustmentRule object, call the static (Shared in Visual Basic) TimeZoneInfo.AdjustmentRule.CreateAdjustmentRule method. You can then supply an array of TimeZoneInfo.AdjustmentRule objects to two of the overloads of the TimeZoneInfo.CreateCustomTimeZone method. To retrieve the adjustment rules of a particular time zone, call its TimeZoneInfo.GetAdjustmentRules method, which returns an array of TimeZoneInfo.AdjustmentRule objects.

Properties

DateEnd DateEnd DateEnd DateEnd

Gets the date when the adjustment rule ceases to be in effect.

DateStart DateStart DateStart DateStart

Gets the date when the adjustment rule takes effect.

DaylightDelta DaylightDelta DaylightDelta DaylightDelta

Gets the amount of time that is required to form the time zone's daylight saving time. This amount of time is added to the time zone's offset from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

DaylightTransitionEnd DaylightTransitionEnd DaylightTransitionEnd DaylightTransitionEnd

Gets information about the annual transition from daylight saving time back to standard time.

DaylightTransitionStart DaylightTransitionStart DaylightTransitionStart DaylightTransitionStart

Gets information about the annual transition from standard time to daylight saving time.

Methods

CreateAdjustmentRule(DateTime, DateTime, TimeSpan, TimeZoneInfo+TransitionTime, TimeZoneInfo+TransitionTime) CreateAdjustmentRule(DateTime, DateTime, TimeSpan, TimeZoneInfo+TransitionTime, TimeZoneInfo+TransitionTime) CreateAdjustmentRule(DateTime, DateTime, TimeSpan, TimeZoneInfo+TransitionTime, TimeZoneInfo+TransitionTime) CreateAdjustmentRule(DateTime, DateTime, TimeSpan, TimeZoneInfo+TransitionTime, TimeZoneInfo+TransitionTime)

Creates a new adjustment rule for a particular time zone.

Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.

(Inherited from Object)
Equals(TimeZoneInfo+AdjustmentRule) Equals(TimeZoneInfo+AdjustmentRule) Equals(TimeZoneInfo+AdjustmentRule) Equals(TimeZoneInfo+AdjustmentRule)

Determines whether the current TimeZoneInfo.AdjustmentRule object is equal to a second TimeZoneInfo.AdjustmentRule object.

GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode()

Serves as a hash function for hashing algorithms and data structures such as hash tables.

GetType() GetType() GetType() GetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.

(Inherited from Object)
ToString() ToString() ToString() ToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.

Explicit Interface Implementations

IDeserializationCallback.OnDeserialization(Object) IDeserializationCallback.OnDeserialization(Object) IDeserializationCallback.OnDeserialization(Object) IDeserializationCallback.OnDeserialization(Object)

Runs when the deserialization of a TimeZoneInfo.AdjustmentRule object is completed.

ISerializable.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext) ISerializable.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext) ISerializable.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext) ISerializable.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

Populates a SerializationInfo object with the data that is required to serialize this object.
