Exception Condition

InvalidOperationException

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

If a custom format string includes the "/" format specifier, the DateTime::ToString method displays the value of DateSeparator in place of the "/" in the result string.

The DateSeparator property defines the string that replaces the date separator ("/" custom date and time format specifier) in a result string in a formatting operation. It also defines the date separator string in a parsing operation.

The following example instantiates a CultureInfo object for the en-US culture, changes its date separator to "-", and displays a date by using the "d", "G", and "g" standard format strings.
