I have dates stored in UTC in my SQL database. I want to render local date/times for date/time columns.
Bind seems messy. I have thought about perhaps creating a derived data field (e.g. derived BoundField) that performs the ToLocalTime conversion during the data bind.
I'm really looking for advice/suggestion on the available options and potentially the cleanest and reusable way to implement this.

In 3.5 TimeZoneInfo was added use it:
TimeZoneInfo.ConvertTime(DateTime.SpecifyKind(yourdateimefromoutside, DateTimeKind.Unspecified), TimeZoneInfo.Local)
