TimeZoneInfo.ToString Method

Returns the current TimeZoneInfo object's display name.

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

public override string ToString()

Return Value

Type: System.String
The value of the DisplayName property of the current TimeZoneInfo object.

When assigning a collection that contains TimeZoneInfo objects to a list control such as the ListBox control, the control automatically calls the ToString method to extract a string that describes each object to be represented in the list. As a result, you do not need to store a meaningful description of the object as a string, and the user does not need to use that string to extract the object from the collection. See How to: Enumerate Time Zones Present on a Computer for more detail.
