DateTimeFormatter.DateTimeFormatter(String, IIterable(String)) constructor

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Creates a DateTimeFormatter object that is initialized by a format template string and language list.

Syntax


var dateTimeFormatter = new Windows.Globalization.DateTimeFormatting.DateTimeFormatter(formatTemplate, languages);

Parameters

formatTemplate

Type: String [JavaScript] | System.String [.NET] | Platform::String [C++]

A format template string that specifies the requested components. The order of the components is irrelevant. This can also be a format pattern. See the remarks for the DateTimeFormatter class for a list of valid format templates and format patterns.

languages

Type: IIterable<String> [JavaScript/C++] | System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<String> [.NET]

The list of language identifiers, in priority order, that represent the choice of languages. These identifiers are used for resolving the template to a pattern and for formatting. See Remarks.

Remarks

If your app passes language tags used in this class to any National Language Support functions, it must first convert the tags by calling ResolveLocaleName.

Starting in Windows 8.1: Language tags support the Unicode extensions "ca-" and "nu-". (See Unicode Key/Type Definitions.) Note that the "ca-" extension can affect the calendar used by DateTimeFormatter objects.
