TimeZoneInfo::Utc Property

Gets a TimeZoneInfo object that represents the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) zone.

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

public:
static property TimeZoneInfo^ Utc {
	TimeZoneInfo^ get ();
}

Property Value

Type: System::TimeZoneInfo
A TimeZoneInfo object that represents the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) zone.

This is a built-in object; information about this TimeZoneInfo object is not retrieved from the registry.

Important noteImportant Note:

You should always access the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) zone through the TimeZoneInfo::Utc property rather than assigning the UTC time zone to a TimeZoneInfo object variable. This prevents the TimeZoneInfo object variable from being invalidated by a call to the ClearCachedData method.

Coordinated Universal Time was previously known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

The following example retrieves a TimeZoneInfo object that represents Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and outputs its display name, standard time name, and daylight saving time name.
