Olson time

Hi,

I am getting all the system Time Zones, now I am matching the Olson timexone with system
time zone, if matches then returning the system timezone i.e  windowsTimeZone.

now the problem is when I am using "America/New_York" it is returning the correct
"Eastern Standard Time"  but when i am using "America/Nassau" it is not returning the
"Eastern Standard Time"  it just returning the blank,

so, can you please guide me what's wrong in the follwoing code.

                        Many thanks.
 
 private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            //MessageBox.Show(GetWindowTimeZone("America/New_York"));
            MessageBox.Show(GetWindowTimeZone("America/Nassau"));           
        }

        private string GetWindowTimeZone(string oslon)
        {
            string windowsTimeZone = null;
            TzdbDateTimeZoneSource Tzdb = new TzdbDateTimeZoneSource("NodaTime.TimeZones.Tzdb");

            //getting all the system time zones and matching with the Olson time zone
            foreach(TimeZoneInfo timeZone in TimeZoneInfo.GetSystemTimeZones())
            {
                System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(timeZone.StandardName + " -- " + Tzdb.MapTimeZoneId(timeZone));
                if (Tzdb.MapTimeZoneId(timeZone) == oslon)
                {
                    windowsTimeZone = timeZone.StandardName;
                    break;
                }
            }

            return windowsTimeZone;
        }

So your code is not wrong, the data is missing.

Did you follow the steps for using your own timezone database? See http://noda-time.googlecode.com/hg-history/1.0.x/docs/userguide/tzdb.html

Noda Time comes with a version of the tzdb (aka zoneinfo) database, which is now hosted by IANA. This database changes over time, as countries decide to change their time zone rules. As new versions of Noda Time are released, the version of tzdb will be updated. However, you may wish to use a new version of tzdb without changing which version of Noda Time you're using. This documentation tells you how to do so.
