TimeZoneInfo.TransitionTime.TimeOfDay Property

Gets the hour, minute, and second at which the time change occurs.

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

public DateTime TimeOfDay { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.DateTime
The time of day at which the time change occurs.

The TimeOfDay property defines only the time of a time change, but not its date. The date is determined by the Month and Day properties for fixed-rule changes, and by the Month, Week, and DayOfWeek properties for floating-rule changes.

The TimeOfDay property is used for both fixed-date and floating-date transitions.

The following example enumerates the time zones found on the local computer and displays transition time information for those time zones that have adjustment rules. The time information includes the time of day at which the time change occurs.


private enum WeekOfMonth
{
   First = 1,
   Second = 2,
   Third = 3,
   Fourth = 4,
   Last = 5,
}

public void GetAllTransitionTimes()
{
   ReadOnlyCollection<TimeZoneInfo> timeZones = TimeZoneInfo.GetSystemTimeZones();
   DateTimeFormatInfo dateInfo = CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.DateTimeFormat;

   foreach (TimeZoneInfo zone in timeZones)
   {
      Console.WriteLine("{0} transition time information:", zone.StandardName);
      TimeZoneInfo.AdjustmentRule[] adjustmentRules= zone.GetAdjustmentRules();

      // Indicate that time zone has no adjustment rules
      if (adjustmentRules.Length == 0)
      { 
         Console.WriteLine("   No adjustment rules defined.");
      }   
      else
      {
         // Iterate adjustment rules       
         foreach (TimeZoneInfo.AdjustmentRule adjustmentRule in adjustmentRules)
         {
            Console.WriteLine("   Adjustment rule from {0:d} to {1:d}:", 
                              adjustmentRule.DateStart, 
                              adjustmentRule.DateEnd);                                 

            // Get start of transition
            TimeZoneInfo.TransitionTime daylightStart = adjustmentRule.DaylightTransitionStart;
