Re: Displaying modified date properly

Displaying modified date properly

I'm using ListFolderAsync in asp.net. Why doesn't it return the modified date time based on the logged in user's Account time zone? Any idea how to display it in the Account's time zone?

 

Thanks.

The API itself returns all datetimes in 'UTC and are strings in the ISO 8601 "combined date and time representation" format: 2015-05-15T15:50:38Z'. 

 

The .NET SDK translates these into native DateTime objects, e.g., as returned in FileMetadata.ClientModified. You can use the standard DateTime methods there to format and display the datetime in whatever format or time zone desired.
