Current Utc Now

DateTime saveNow = DateTime.Now; // Get the date and time for the current moment expressed // as coordinated universal time (UTC). DateTime saveUtcNow = DateTime.UtcNow; DateTime myDt; // Display the value and Kind property of the current moment // expressed as UTC and local time. Converting EST to UTC.

Utc Time Right Now

The following example uses the Now and UtcNow properties to retrieve the current local date and time and the current universal coordinated (UTC) date and time. It then uses the formatting conventions of a number of cultures to display the strings, along with the values of the their Kind properties.


What Is Current Utc

The Now property returns a DateTime value that represents the current date and time on the local computer. Note that there is a difference between a DateTime value, which represents the number of ticks that have elapsed since midnight of January 1, 0001, and the string representation of that DateTime value, which expresses a date and time value in a culture-specific-specific format. For information on formatting date and time values, see the ToString method. The following example displays the short date and time string in a number of culture-specific formats.

The resolution of this property depends on the system timer, which depends on the underlying operating system. It tends to be between 0.5 and 15 milliseconds. As a result, repeated calls to the Now property in a short time interval, such as in a loop, may return the same value.

The Now property is frequently used to measure performance. However, because of its low resolution, it is not suitable for use as a benchmarking tool. A better alternative is to use the Stopwatch class.
