Property Value

Type: System.String

The custom format string for a sortable date and time value.

The SortableDateTimePattern 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 "s" standard format string.

The format string returned by the SortableDateTimePattern property reflects a defined standard (ISO 8601), and the property is read-only. Therefore, it is always the same, regardless of the culture. The custom format string is "yyyy'-'MM'-'dd'T'HH':'mm':'ss".

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