Time Zone Component for .NET

Hey gang,

I just wanted to share with you guys a great .NET component which
handles the timezone conversion very seamlessly. Take a look at this
site, www.TimeZoneSource.com, they do it well. It also takes into
account daylight savings time and is very lightweight. They have a SQL
version as well.

It is supported for .NET v1.1 and 2.0.

Way to go guys, saved me hours!

Just my 2 cents... But at 200$ a pop I'd much rather code my own (and
perhaps share it on sourceforge or such)... You can find lots of C# code
of time zone stuff all over the place anyways (including on
codeproject.com).

True, indeed you could, but as a developer and you could spend a couple
hours searching for a solution and another couple hours writing it.
Eitherway, start to finish, you are probably looking at 5 hours,
minimum. It is tested and it saved me hours of time, which was one
less thing I had to worry about.

2 cents appreciated.

Here is my free one (TTimeZone) at Channel9 with source. It is in a project
with many other UDTs such as TDate, TDateTime, TTimeSpan, TList, etc.

I hope they do well, but $200 bucks is pretty steep for just a couple of
time zone apis.
