In .NET 1.1, use the Timezone class’ IsDayLightSavingTime method to determine whether a given DateTime falls into Daylight Savings Time.

 TimeZone tzDLST = TimeZone.CurrentTimeZone;DateTime dt = DateTime.Now;bool isDLST = tzDLST .IsDaylightSavingTime(dt);

DateTime dt = DateTime.Now;bool isDLST = dt.IsDaylightSavingTime(dt);
