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

member ToUniversalTime : unit -> DateTimeOffset

Return Value

Type: System.DateTimeOffset
An object that represents the date and time of the current DateTimeOffset object converted to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

This method returns a DateTimeOffset object whose Offset property is set to zero.

Both the value of the current DateTimeOffset object and the value of the DateTimeOffset object returned by the method call represent the same point in time. That is, if both are passed to the DateTimeOffset.Equals(DateTimeOffset, DateTimeOffset) method, the method will return true.

The following example calls the ToUniversalTime method to convert a local time and several other times to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
