DateField does not display time zone offset.


DateField doesn't  use the time zone offset, but instead always displays the default time of the phone.

How to reproduce

Create a new time zone offset value with the following line:
TimeZone timezone = TimeZone.getTimeZone("GMT-00:30");
The example uses minus 30 minutes as an offset value. Use the created offset values as a parameter in dateField constructor:
today = new Date(System.currentTimeMillis());
datefield = new DateField("title",DateField.DATE_TIME, timezone);
Now the dateField should have the current date and current time +/- the selected offset value.
