DateTimeFormatInfo.UniversalSortableDateTimePattern Property

Gets the format pattern for a universal sortable date and time value, which is associated with the "u" format pattern.

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

public string UniversalSortableDateTimePattern { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The format pattern for a universal sortable date and time value, which is associated with the "u" format pattern.

UniversalSortableDateTimePattern can be used to display time in a sortable format with the universal time designator "Z" at the end. The format is sortable because it uses leading zeros for year, month, day, hour, minute, and second. The specifier ("yyyy'-'MM'-'dd HH':'mm':'ss'Z'") is the same regardless of culture or format provider.

The following example displays the value of UniversalSortableDateTimePattern 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.UniversalSortableDateTimePattern );

   }

}

/*
This code produces the following output.

 CULTURE    PROPERTY VALUE
  en-US     yyyy'-'MM'-'dd HH':'mm':'ss'Z'
  ja-JP     yyyy'-'MM'-'dd HH':'mm':'ss'Z'
  fr-FR     yyyy'-'MM'-'dd HH':'mm':'ss'Z'
