Important noteImportant

Because this method uses culture-sensitive data, you should not assume that multiple calls to the method will return identical data. The data returned by this method can change if the current culture changes, the user overrides individual cultural settings, or an update occurs to the system's cultural data.

The following example demonstrates the GetDateTimeFormats(Char) method. It displays the string representation of a date using the long date format specifier ("D") for the current culture.
