DateTimeFormatInfo.MonthDayPattern Property

Gets or sets the format pattern for a month and day value, which is associated with the "m" and "M" format patterns.

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

public string MonthDayPattern { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The format pattern for a month and day value, which is associated with the "m" and "M" format patterns.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The property is being set to null.

InvalidOperationException

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

See DateTimeFormatInfo for patterns that can be combined to construct custom patterns, for example, "MMMM dd".

This property is affected if the value of the Calendar property changes.

Your applications are recommended to set MonthDayPattern to the exact value of interest, instead of attempting to have the date separator replaced. For example, to obtain the pattern MM-DD, the application should set "MM-DD" specifically.

The following example displays the value of MonthDayPattern for a few cultures.


using System;
using System.Globalization;


public class SamplesDTFI  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Displays the values of the pattern properties.
      Console.WriteLine( " CULTURE    PROPERTY VALUE" );
      PrintPattern( "en-US" );
      PrintPattern( "ja-JP" );
      PrintPattern( "fr-FR" );

   }

   public static void PrintPattern( String myCulture )  {

      DateTimeFormatInfo myDTFI = new CultureInfo( myCulture, false ).DateTimeFormat;
      Console.WriteLine( "  {0}     {1}", myCulture, myDTFI.MonthDayPattern );

   }

}

/*
This code produces the following output.  The question marks take the place of native script characters.

 CULTURE    PROPERTY VALUE
  en-US     MMMM dd
  ja-JP     M'?'d'?'
  fr-FR     d MMMM
