DateTimeFormatInfo.InvariantInfo Property

Gets the default read-only DateTimeFormatInfo object that is culture-independent (invariant).

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

public static DateTimeFormatInfo InvariantInfo { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Globalization.DateTimeFormatInfo
A read-only object that is culture-independent (invariant).

This property does not change, regardless of the current culture. Because of this, the invariant culture's DateTimeFormatInfo object can be used to produce consistent, culture-independent results in parsing and formatting operations on data that is multi-cultural. For example, if date and time data from multiple cultures is to be persisted in string form, it can be formatted by using the DateTimeFormatInfo object of the invariant culture and saved. It can then be parsed by using the invariant culture's DateTimeFormatInfo object.
