DateTimeFormatInfo.InvariantInfo DateTimeFormatInfo.InvariantInfo DateTimeFormatInfo.InvariantInfo DateTimeFormatInfo.InvariantInfo Property

Definition

Gets the default read-only DateTimeFormatInfo object that is culture-independent (invariant).

public:
 static property System::Globalization::DateTimeFormatInfo ^ InvariantInfo { System::Globalization::DateTimeFormatInfo ^ get(); };
public static System.Globalization.DateTimeFormatInfo InvariantInfo { get; }
member this.InvariantInfo : System.Globalization.DateTimeFormatInfo
Public Shared ReadOnly Property InvariantInfo As DateTimeFormatInfo
Property Value

A read-only object that is culture-independent (invariant).

Remarks

This property does not change, regardless of the current culture. Because of this, the invariant culture's DateTimeFormatInfo object can be used to produce consistent, culture-independent results in parsing and formatting operations on data that is multi-cultural. For example, if date and time data from multiple cultures is to be persisted in string form, it can be formatted by using the DateTimeFormatInfo object of the invariant culture and saved. It can then be parsed by using the invariant culture's DateTimeFormatInfo object.
