    How do you suggest setting the TimeZone property of an IAppointment object in Silverilght to something other than Local or UTC?

    Unless I am missing something, here is the problem:
    • You can't lookup a timezoneinfo object in silverilght by id
    • You can't create a custom timezoneinfo object in silverlight, so you're stuck with either local or utc
    • You can't pass a timezoneinfo object to a silverlight app from the server either through RIA Services or WCF becuase TimeZoneInfo has a private constructor, and is a sealed class

    If the above are all true, how can we display appointments in the RadScheduleView that are neither UTC or local timezone? This has to be one of the most common scenarios for this control, no?

    Hello Chad,

    Thank you for your question.

    Actually, you are the first one with similar request for RadScheduleView for Silverlight. The Silverlight TimeZoneInfo class supports UTC and Client local timezones only. That is why RadScheduleView for Silverlight does not support any other timeZone. You can vote in MS forum for adding support for different TimeZones under the following link
