If the custom pattern includes the format pattern ":", DateTime.ToString displays the value of in place of the ":" in the format pattern.
The time separator is derived from the ShortTimePattern property. Your applications are recommended to set the short or long time patterns to the exact values of interest, instead of attempting to have the time separator replaced. For example, to obtain the pattern h-mm-ss, the application should set "h-mm-ss" specifically. This also permits the setting of patterns such as "h'h 'mm'm 'ss's'" (3h 36m 12s) that don't contain a traditional separator between all parts of the format.
