A DateTime object consists of a Kind field that indicates whether the time value is based on local time, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), or neither, and a Ticks field that contains a time value measured in 100-nanosecond ticks. The method creates a new DateTime object using the specified kind parameter and the original time value.
The returned DateTime value does not represent the same instant in time as the value parameter, and is not a time zone conversion method. Instead, it leaves the time specified by the value parameter unchanged, and sets the Kind property to kind. For information about time zone conversions, see Converting Times Between Time Zones.
The method is useful in interoperability scenarios where you receive a DateTime object with an unspecified Kind field, but you can determine by independent means that the Ticks field represents local time or UTC.
