What is your product version? 10.3.0

What is your product type (Angular or MVC)? Angular

What is product framework type (.net framework or .net core)? .NET 5

Hi, Is there a way we can update the Time Zone list in settings to show based on the time zones rather than time zone names? For ex. GMT - 11:30 (City names) GMT - 11:00 (City names)




GMT (City names)




GMT + 11:30 (City names) GMT + 12:00 (City Names)

Or, as an alternative is it possible to append the Timezone against each of the currently shown time zone names? Such As

GMT + 5:30 - India Standard Time

Any of these two options possible? If yes could you help us underatand how best we can do this?

Thanks

    Hi,

    This list is retrieved in https://github.com/aspnetzero/aspnet-zero-core/blob/dev/aspnet-core/src/MyCompanyName.AbpZeroTemplate.Core/Timing/TimeZoneService.cs#L58.

    You can change GetWindowsTimezones method as shown below;

    public List<NameValueDto> GetWindowsTimezones()
            {
                return TZConvert.KnownWindowsTimeZoneIds.OrderBy(tz => tz)
                    .Select(tz => new NameValueDto
                    {
                        Value = TZConvert.GetTimeZoneInfo(tz).DisplayName,
                        Name = tz
                    }).ToList();
            }

    Hi,

    Sorry, I think I made a mistake, could you try this:

    public List<NameValueDto> GetWindowsTimezones()
    {
        return TZConvert.KnownWindowsTimeZoneIds.OrderBy(tz => tz)
            .Select(tz => new NameValueDto
            {
                Value = tz,
                Name = TZConvert.GetTimeZoneInfo(tz).DisplayName
            }).ToList();
    }

    This is the function that throws:

                    .Select(tz => new NameValueDto

                    }).ToList();
                    
    

    Haven't resolved it yet.

    What's interesting, is if I move that function from the TimeZoneService, and run it inside the TimingAppService, it works fine.

    Only when it's under Core project does it fail.

    I determined why: I was importing a project into the .core project and it downgraded TZConvert.

    I made sure my imported project's csproj file, packages, etc were as identical to .core as I could - and in doing so, the TZConvert is behaving as expected.

    Therefore, shedspotter, check your nuget packages, and more in the csproj file - in the event you're importing a project or a package downgraded your TZConvert.
