TimeStandard Properties

The TimeStandard type exposes the following members.

Public propertyAbbreviation
Gets an abbreviation for this time standard.
Public propertyArithmeticSafeStandard
Gets a time standard that is equivalent to this time standard but is safe for arithmetic. In order to be safe for arithmetic, a time standard must not have any discontinuities and it must have exactly 86400 seconds in every day. How the seconds are measured does not matter, but the standard returned by this method must measure seconds in the same way as the standard implementing this method. For example, UTC is not safe for arithmetic (and thus returns TAI) but UT1 is safe for arithmetic. If a time standard is safe for arithmetic, returns .
