Return Value

A String formatted in this pattern: xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx where the value of the GUID is represented as a series of lower-case hexadecimal digits in groups of 8, 4, 4, 4, and 12 digits and separated by hyphens. An example of a return value is "382c74c3-721d-4f34-80e5-57657b6cbc27".

This method provides a default GUID format that is sufficient for typical use; however, other versions of this method that take a format parameter provide a few common format variations.
