A time zone is a geographical region in which the same time is used.
The TimeZone class recognizes only the local time zone, and can convert times between Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and local time. A TimeZoneInfo object can represent any time zone, and methods of the TimeZoneInfo class can be used to convert the time in one time zone to the corresponding time in any other time zone. The members of the TimeZoneInfo class support the following operations:
Retrieving a time zone that is already defined by the operating system.
Enumerating the time zones that are available on a system.
Converting times between different time zones.
Creating a new time zone that is not already defined by the operating system.
Serializing a time zone for later retrieval.
An instance of the TimeZoneInfo class is immutable. Once an object has been instantiated, its values cannot be modified.
|Static member name||Description|
|CreateCustomTimeZone method||Creates a custom time zone from application-supplied data.|
|FindSystemTimeZoneById method||Instantiates a time zone based on its identifier.|
|FromSerializedString method||Deserializes a string value to re-create a previously serialized TimeZoneInfo object.|
|GetSystemTimeZones method||Returns an enumerable ReadOnlyCollection<T> of TimeZoneInfo objects that represents all time zones that are available on the local system.|
|Local property||Instantiates a TimeZoneInfo object that represents the local time zone.|
|Utc property||Instantiates a TimeZoneInfo object that represents the UTC zone.|
You can use the CreateCustomTimeZone method to create a time zone that is not defined in the local system registry on Windows systems or by the time zone classes in the ICU Library on Linux or macOS. You can then use the ToSerializedString property to save the time zone object's information as a string, which can be stored in some form that is accessible to the application. You can use the FromSerializedString method to convert a serialized string back to a TimeZoneInfo object.
