Return Value

Type: System.String

A string representation of the value of the DateTime object.

Some cultures cannot convert future dates into strings. If the expiration date of an X.509 certificate is beyond the range of the culture, FormatDate falls back to a calendar that can express the date. If the Calendar value is UmAlQuraCalendar, the calendar is changed to the HijriCalendar class; otherwise, it is changed to the InvariantCulture.
