    Change the time zone

    Hi all,


                        I have a requirement where I need to change the time zone of the datetime from EDT to CDT. How to achieve that?

        But change the TimeZone where? On Server, on Client Browser,... ?

            var dateValue = new Date();

            // dateFormat(dateValue:DATETIME,dateFormat:STRING):STRING

            var formattedDate = dateFormat(dateValue,'yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm zzz');

            var result = formattedDate;



            It's automatically coming in EDT


            While I want it in CDT

                With TW TimeZone limitations we had faced


                Client Side ( Browser ) on TW it's ALWAYS in User's Browser Selected TimeZone

                Server Side ( TW Server Runtime ) on TW it's ALWAYS in Server System TimeZone.


                No more options Out-Of-The-Box.


                As we needed real TimeZone support we had to Customize ALL DateTime Widgets to support TimeZone as a binding target ( Grid, DateTimePicker, TimeSeries, ValueDisplay,... ). And Also to support on server side we had to build a Java extension leveraging JODA time library which it's already in place.


                Hope it helps
