I have the following code to get the Created date time for a list item:-

((DateTime)item.Created).ToString("dd MMMM yyyy HH:mm:ss") + " )"

now the date time i will get will be in UTC time zone, while our site collection regional setting uses this time zone:-

enter image description here

so if i have a time inside my SharePoint list view = 25/07/2020 11:05 i will get it as 25/07/2020 07:05.. any advice?

  • @GaneshSanap i already read this article but it uses get_regionalSettings() inside javascript while i am working on CSOM code which does not have such as method – John John Nov 3 '20 at 14:32

This worked for me.

 public static void ConvertUtcToSPRegionalSetting()

            string sitrUrl = "http://abc.sharePoint.com/sites/AZV";

            using (var context = new ClientContext(sitrUrl))

                Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.TimeZone sharePointTimeZone = context.Web.RegionalSettings.TimeZone;


                var fixedTimeZoneName = sharePointTimeZone.Description.Replace("and", "&");
                //var timeZoneInfo = TimeZoneInfo.Local;
                var easternZone = TimeZoneInfo.GetSystemTimeZones();
                var TimeZoneID = "";
                foreach (var z in easternZone)
                    if (z.DisplayName == fixedTimeZoneName)
                        TimeZoneID = z.Id;

                var myTimeZone = TimeZoneInfo.FindSystemTimeZoneById(TimeZoneID);

                //Destination List
                List oList = context.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("TestAuthor");

                var listItems = oList.GetItems(CamlQuery.CreateAllItemsQuery());

                items => items.Include(
                item => item["ReportDate"]


                foreach (ListItem item in listItems)
                    DateTime reportDate = (DateTime)item["ReportDate"];
                    var ConvertedDateTime = TimeZoneInfo.ConvertTimeFromUtc(reportDate, myTimeZone);

                    Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Original Datetime: {0}-{1}, Converted TimeZone DateTime:{2}-{3}", reportDate.ToShortDateString(), reportDate.ToShortTimeString(), ConvertedDateTime.ToShortDateString(), ConvertedDateTime.ToShortTimeString()));
