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

public string[] AbbreviatedDayNames { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String[]
A one-dimensional array of type String containing the culture-specific abbreviated names of the days of the week. The array for InvariantInfo contains "Sun", "Mon", "Tue", "Wed", "Thu", "Fri", and "Sat".

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

An attempt was made to set the property to null.

ArgumentException

An attempt was made to set the property to a multidimensional array or to a single-dimensional array with a length that is not exactly 7.

InvalidOperationException

The DateTimeFormatInfo object is read-only.

If setting this property, the array must be one-dimensional and must have exactly seven elements.

If a custom format string includes the format specifier "ddd", DateTime.ToString returns the value of the appropriate element of the AbbreviatedDayNames array in place of "ddd" in the format string.

This property is affected if the value of the Calendar property changes. If the selected Calendar does not support abbreviated day names, the array contains the full day names.
