DateTimeFormatInfo.PMDesignator Property

Gets or sets the string designator for hours that are "post meridiem" (after noon).

Namespace: System.Globalization
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public string PMDesignator { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_PMDesignator ()

/** @property */
public void set_PMDesignator (String value)

public function get PMDesignator () : String

public function set PMDesignator (value : String)

Property Value

The string designator for hours that are "post meridiem" (after noon). The default for InvariantInfo is "PM".

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

The property is being set to a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

InvalidOperationException

The property is being set and the DateTimeFormatInfo is read-only.

If the custom pattern includes the format pattern "tt" and the time is after noon, DateTime.ToString displays the value of PMDesignator in place of the "tt" in the format pattern. If the custom pattern includes the format pattern "t", only the first character of PMDesignator is displayed.

For cultures that do not use a PM designator, this property returns an empty string.
