Timezone offset for operator in JavaScript

Please suggest how can I receive offset (e.g GMT+3) for appropriate timezone.

As I mentioned, I can take timezone for current operator in system (ESS portal) by checking system.vars.$lo_time_zone variable (ex. Europe/Western) and I want take current offset for this timezone (e.g GMT+3) in JavaScript to display on web right time of selected DB record (now it's displayed in System Time zone Greenwich/Universal)

Thanks in advance

Hi There,


as I know there isn't a concrete timezone change option, but you can handle your system date as an xmldate object and add three hours to it with Javascript and then show the increased date on web.
