#1180 closed Bug (Fixed)

_Date_Time_GetTimeZoneInformation Returned Values

Reported by: yn0t <spinxkx@…> Owned by: Jpm
Milestone: Component: Documentation
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


In the documentation of _Date_Time_GetTimeZoneInformation it states that elements [3] & [6] returns a $tagSYSTEMTIME date and time of when Daylight Savings time starts/ends. This should probably be clarified.

The returned value is not an actual date. It represents which Sunday the change over takes place. For example after the following is run.

$TimeZone = _Date_Time_GetTimeZoneInformation()
$array = _Date_Time_SystemTimeToArray($TimeZone[6])

$array[0] will equal 3 (March) and $array[1] will equal 2. The 2 represents the second Sunday (which is March 8th, 2009 this year). It does not represent March 2nd.
