DateTimeOffSet values are often converted to strings for display but they often fail when they are converted back. See how to avoid this failure.

DateTimeOffSet values are often converted to strings for display or some other purpose. But these representations often fail when they are used to convert them back to valid date/time values.

For example:

DateTimeOffSet d = DateTimeOffSet.Now;
Console.WriteLine(d.ToString("u"));
