Hi guys,

I am hosted in the US but writing an app that will have global users. One feature is an event calendar with event times. What I am looking for is a way to get the users own timezone from their clock and then do a date/time conversion so that they see the event date/time in their own timezone.

Not being a php/web app guru, what is an elegant way to do this.

Thanks in advance.

Ive never done time zone support... but a good old google search never fails. I don't think theres anything built into SilverStripe (I could be wrong. Ive just never used it)

Also on the PHP.net site there is

For reference.
