Dealing with Datetimeoffset Serialization to Strings

Dealing with Datetimeoffset Serialization to Strings

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.

We need to use the ToString method’s overload and pass the “u” or “s” formats as they are culture-invariant.

For example:

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