Hi All,

We wanted to implement timezone support from our web interface where user should be able to select timezone in the following UTC format similar to windows 7 OS.

Is it possible to fetch records for timezone from tz database in following UTC format to construct timezone drop down? if yes then how can we set timezone in UTC  format like

set timezone UTC+05:30 Chennai,Kolkata,Mumbai,New Delhi
