/** @property */ public String get_AMDesignator () /** @property */ public void set_AMDesignator (String value)
public function get AMDesignator () : String public function set AMDesignator (value : String)
Property ValueThe string designator for hours that are "ante meridiem" (before noon). The default for InvariantInfo is "AM".
If the custom pattern includes the format pattern "tt" and the time is before noon, DateTime.ToString displays the value of AMDesignator in place of the "tt" in the format pattern. If the custom pattern includes the format pattern "t", only the first character of AMDesignator is displayed. Your application should use "tt" for languages for which it is necessary to maintain the distinction between AM and PM. An example is Japanese, for which the AM and PM designators differ in the second character instead of the first character.
For cultures that do not use an AM designator, this property returns an empty string.
