DateTimeOffset Constructor (Int64, TimeSpan)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
offset is not specified in whole minutes.
ticks is less than DateTimeOffset.MinValue.Ticks or greater than DateTimeOffset.MaxValue.Ticks.
Offset s less than -14 hours or greater than 14 hours.
Ordinarily, trying to call the DateTimeOffset constructor to instantiate a DateTimeOffset value with a local time and an offset other than that of the local time zone throws an ArgumentException. You can use this overload of the DateTimeOffset constructor to work around this limitation. The following example uses the local time's number of ticks to instantiate a DateTimeOffset value whose offset does not necessarily represent that of the local time:
The following example initializes a DateTimeOffset object by using the number of ticks in an arbitrary date (in this case, July 16, 2007, at 1:32 PM) with an offset of -5.
DateTime dateWithoutOffset = new DateTime(2007, 7, 16, 13, 32, 00); DateTimeOffset timeFromTicks = new DateTimeOffset(dateWithoutOffset.Ticks, new TimeSpan(-5, 0, 0)); outputBlock.Text += timeFromTicks.ToString() + "\n"; // The code produces the following output: // 7/16/2007 1:32:00 PM -05:00
