DateTimeFormatInfo.FullDateTimePattern Property

Gets or sets the format pattern for a long date and long time value, which is associated with the 'F' format character.

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

public string FullDateTimePattern { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_FullDateTimePattern ()

/** @property */
public void set_FullDateTimePattern (String value)

public function get FullDateTimePattern () : String

public function set FullDateTimePattern (value : String)

Property Value

The format pattern for a long date and long time value, which is associated with the 'F' format character.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

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

InvalidOperationException

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

See DateTimeFormatInfo for patterns that can be combined to construct custom patterns; for example, "dddd, dd MMMM yyyy HH:mm:ss".

This property is affected if the value of the Calendar property changes.

The following code example displays the value of FullDateTimePattern for a few cultures.

using System;
using System.Globalization;


public class SamplesDTFI  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Displays the values of the pattern properties.
      Console.WriteLine( " CULTURE    PROPERTY VALUE" );
      PrintPattern( "en-US" );
      PrintPattern( "ja-JP" );
      PrintPattern( "fr-FR" );

   }

   public static void PrintPattern( String myCulture )  {

      DateTimeFormatInfo myDTFI = new CultureInfo( myCulture, false ).DateTimeFormat;
      Console.WriteLine( "  {0}     {1}", myCulture, myDTFI.FullDateTimePattern );

   }

}
