What’s that time? Daylight Savings Time and NetAdvantage Scheduling

[Infragistics] Andrew Flick / Thursday, January 25, 2007

For the United States (and Canada) the start and end of daylight savings times will be changed this year.  Daylight savings time will now start on March 11, 2007 (about 3 weeks earlier than normal) and end November 4th, 2007 (one week later). 

This may affect you if you are using the Infragistics Scheduling products that are part of NetAdvantage.  We rely on the operating system clock to get the current date and time (DateTime.Now).  Therefore, if your operating system clock is off; so is your scheduling application. 

That being said, Microsoft has released some information (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/timezone/dst2007.mspx) for preparing for the time change and also released a series of patches (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928388).  After making the appropriate OS updates your scheduling applications will observe the appropriate time changes.
