We have a Stock Market Viewer application which uses web services for data distribution.
A problem occurs when data is sent accross timezones where the datetime values are being shown in
the local time, so that a trade occurring at 12:51 in the datagrid in the same timezone as the server will be shown
as 14:51 at the remote client. I know this is an issue having to do with datetime and xmlserialization. In some cases this would
be a natural way to display the data but clearly not in all.
Is there any way to set an application domain or thread to simulate being in a different timezone or having a time offset without having to configure regional settings.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
