Version Notes

XNA Framework

 When this property is used in the XNA Framework, it throws a NotSupportedException exception.

The following example defines a method named DisplayDateWithTimeZoneName that uses the IsDaylightSavingTime(DateTime) method to determine whether to display a time zone's standard time name or daylight saving time name.


private void DisplayDateWithTimeZoneName(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock, 
                                         DateTime date1, TimeZoneInfo timeZone)
{
   outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The time is {0:t} on {0:d} {1}",
                     date1,
                     timeZone.IsDaylightSavingTime(date1) ?
                         timeZone.DaylightName : timeZone.StandardName) + "\n";
}
