Property Value

Type: System.String[]
A one-dimensional array of type String containing the culture-specific abbreviated names of the days of the week. The array for InvariantInfo contains "Sun", "Mon", "Tue", "Wed", "Thu", "Fri", and "Sat".

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The property is being set to null.

ArgumentException

The property is being set to an array that is multidimensional or that has a length that is not exactly 7.

InvalidOperationException

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

If setting this property, the array must be one-dimensional and must have exactly seven elements.

If the custom pattern includes the format pattern "ddd", DateTime.ToString displays the value of AbbreviatedDayNames in place of the "ddd" in the format pattern.

This property is affected if the value of the Calendar property changes. If the selected Calendar does not support abbreviated day names, the array contains the full day names.
