Property Value

Type: System..::..String
The format pattern for a long time value.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

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

InvalidOperationException

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

The LongTimePattern property defines the culture-specific format of date strings that are returned by calls to the DateTime..::..ToString and DateTimeOffset.ToString methods and by composite format strings that are supplied the "T" standard format string.

We recommend that you set the time separator in the long time pattern to an exact string instead of using the time separator placeholder. For example, to obtain the pattern h-mm-ss, set the long date pattern to "h-mm-ss".
