If the custom pattern includes the format pattern "/", DateTime.ToString displays the value of in place of the "/" in the format pattern.
The date separator is derived from the ShortDatePattern property. Your applications are recommended to set the short date pattern to the exact value of interest, instead of attempting to have the date separator replaced. For example, to obtain the pattern MM-DD-yyyy, the application should set "MM-DD-yyyy" specifically. This also permits the setting of patterns such as "MM/DD, yyyy" that don't contain a traditional separator between all parts of the format.
