DateTimeOffset Implicit Conversion (DateTime to DateTimeOffset)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The method enables the compiler to automatically convert a DateTime object to a DateTimeOffset object without an explicit casting operator (in C#) or a call to a conversion function (in Visual Basic). It defines a widening conversion that does not involve data loss and does not throw an OverflowException. The method makes code such as the following possible:
If the value of the DateTime.Kind property is DateTimeKind.Local or DateTimeKind.Unspecified, the date and time of the DateTimeOffset object is set equal to dateTime, and its Offset property is set equal to the offset of the local system's current time zone.
