Property Value

A one-dimensional array of type String containing the culture-specific full names of the days of the week. The array for InvariantInfo contains "Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", and "Saturday".

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

Remarks

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