Different timezones

P: n/a
We're currently working on an application (VB.Net) that needs to keep track
of times in different timezones.
For instance, the application is run in Berlin and needs to display the
exact time in New York (considering daylight savings).
Does the framework contain some basic methods to support this functionality?

Thanks in advance!

The framework does not have facilities to convert time. But you can use the toUTCtime to get the UTC time for any time zone you app is running in. Then the conversion to the other coordinates is up to you.

Thanks!

I was hoping for some extra functionality in the framework, but I guess I'll
have to do some converting myself.
