olHow to get the IANA/Olsen time zones for a country in C# .NET Framework

Today we are going to be demonstrating a super simple method by which we can determine the time zone of a country using C#. This is a lot easier than dealing with country databases and the like. In fact, it will take just a couple minutes to get set up and running. Let’s dive straight into it!

First we will need our package:

Install-Package Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.Validate -Version 3.0.6

Next call the following function for retrieving time zones, and input the country you would like to test.

using System;using System.Diagnostics;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.Validate.Api;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.Validate.Client;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.Validate.Model;namespace Example{public class AddressGetTimezoneExample{public void main(){// Configure API key authorization: ApikeyConfiguration.Default.AddApiKey("Apikey", "YOUR_API_KEY");// Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed// Configuration.Default.AddApiKeyPrefix("Apikey", "Bearer");var apiInstance = new AddressApi();var input = new GetTimezonesRequest(); // GetTimezonesRequest | Input requesttry{// Gets IANA/Olsen time zones for a countryGetTimezonesResponse result = apiInstance.AddressGetTimezone(input);Debug.WriteLine(result);}catch (Exception e){Debug.Print("Exception when calling AddressApi.AddressGetTimezone: " + e.Message );}}}}

Done! Super easy.
