DateTimeFormatInfo.AbbreviatedDayNames Property

Gets or sets a one-dimensional array of type String containing the culture-specific abbreviated names of the days of the week.

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

public string[] AbbreviatedDayNames { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String[] get_AbbreviatedDayNames ()

/** @property */
public void set_AbbreviatedDayNames (String[] value)

public function get AbbreviatedDayNames () : String[]

public function set AbbreviatedDayNames (value : String[])

Property Value

A one-dimensional array of type String containing the culture-specific abbreviated names of the days of the week. The array for InvariantInfo contains "Sun", "Mon", "Tue", "Wed", "Thu", "Fri", and "Sat".

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

The property is being set to a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

ArgumentException

The property is being set to an array that is multidimensional or whose length is not exactly 7.

InvalidOperationException

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

If setting this property, the array must be one-dimensional and must have exactly seven elements.

If the custom pattern includes the format pattern "ddd", DateTime.ToString displays the value of AbbreviatedDayNames in place of the "ddd" in the format pattern.

This property is affected if the value of the Calendar property changes. If the selected Calendar does not support abbreviated day names, the array contains the full day names.
