TimeZone.DaylightName Property

Gets the daylight saving time zone name.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public abstract string DaylightName { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The daylight saving time zone name.

If daylight saving time is not used in the time zone, an empty string ("") is returned.

The DaylightName property corresponds to the TimeZoneInfo.DaylightName property. Whenever possible, use the TimeZoneInfo.DaylightName property.

The following example references and displays the DaylightName property of the current time zone.

// Example of selected TimeZone class elements. 
using System;
using System.Globalization;

class TimeZoneDemo
{
    static void Main( )
    {
        const string dataFmt = "{0,-30}{1}";
        const string timeFmt = "{0,-30}{1:yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm}";

        Console.WriteLine(
            "This example of selected TimeZone class " +
            "elements generates the following \n" +
            "output, which varies depending on the " +
            "time zone in which it is run.\n" );

        // Get the local time zone and the current local time and year.
        TimeZone localZone = TimeZone.CurrentTimeZone;
        DateTime currentDate = DateTime.Now;
        int      currentYear = currentDate.Year;

        // Display the names for standard time and daylight saving  
        // time for the local time zone.
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Standard time name:", 
            localZone.StandardName );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Daylight saving time name:", 
            localZone.DaylightName );

        // Display the current date and time and show if they occur  
        // in daylight saving time.
        Console.WriteLine( "\n" + timeFmt, "Current date and time:",
            currentDate );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "Daylight saving time?", 
            localZone.IsDaylightSavingTime( currentDate ) );

        // Get the current Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and UTC  
        // offset.
        DateTime currentUTC = 
            localZone.ToUniversalTime( currentDate );
        TimeSpan currentOffset = 
            localZone.GetUtcOffset( currentDate );

        Console.WriteLine( timeFmt, "Coordinated Universal Time:", 
            currentUTC );
        Console.WriteLine( dataFmt, "UTC offset:", currentOffset );

        // Get the DaylightTime object for the current year.
        DaylightTime daylight = 
            localZone.GetDaylightChanges( currentYear );

        // Display the daylight saving time range for the current year.
        Console.WriteLine( 
            "\nDaylight saving time for year {0}:", currentYear );
        Console.WriteLine( "{0:yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm} to " +
            "{1:yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm}, delta: {2}", 
            daylight.Start, daylight.End, daylight.Delta );
    } 
}
