The StringFormatMask is used to select the string format attributes. The string format attributes enhance interoperability by defining how strings should be interpreted.
If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this property applies to the generic type definition from which the type was constructed. For example, if the current Type represents MyGenericType<int> (MyGenericType(Of Integer) in Visual Basic), the value of this property is determined by MyGenericType<T>.
If the current Type represents a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or generic method, this property always returns false.
