Property Details

<Boolean> respectsDaylightSaving

A read-only property that indicates whether the time reference takes into account daylight savings time. If true, the time values are represented in both the standard time zone and the daylight savings time (when applicable). If false, time values are assumed to be in the standard time zone.
Known values: true | false

<String> timeZone

The time zone in which the data was captured. This property is read-only. For example, data created in the Pacific Time Zone would have the following value for layer.timeInfo.timeReference.timeZone: "Pacific Standard Time".
Sample:
//time-enabled layer mapping hurricane tracks in the Atlantic Ocean
var url = "http://sampleserver6.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/Hurricanes/MapServer/0";
       
var layer = new FeatureLayer(url);
//Prints "Pacific Standard Time"
console.log(layer.timeInfo.timeReference.timeZone);
