Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)


Public Class SPTimeZone
Dim instance As SPTimeZone
public class SPTimeZone


Use the TimeZone property of the SPRegionalSettings class to return the time zone used in a specific site or time zone that the user has selected to view. Otherwise, use the TimeZones property of the SPRegionalSettings class to return the collection of time zone choices in the site or in the deployment of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.

Use an indexer to return a single time zone from the collection. For example, if the collection is assigned to a variable named collTimeZones, use collTimeZones[index] in C#, or collTimeZones(index) in Visual Basic, where index is the index number of the time zone in the collection.


The following code example displays the time zone of all sites in the current site collection.

Dim siteCollection As New SPSite("http://localhost")
Dim subSites As SPWebCollection = siteCollection.AllWebs
Dim site As SPWeb
For Each site In subSites
Next site
using(SPSite oSiteCollection = new SPSite("http://localhost"))
    SPWebCollection collWebsites = oSiteCollection.AllWebs;
    foreach (SPWeb oWebsite in collWebsites)


Certain objects implement the IDisposable interface, and you must avoid retaining these objects in memory after they are no longer needed. For information about good coding practices, see Disposing Objects.
