Examples

The following example displays the value of ShortTimePattern for a few cultures.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Globalization;
void PrintPattern( String^ myCulture )
{
   CultureInfo^ MyCI = gcnew CultureInfo( myCulture,false );
   DateTimeFormatInfo^ myDTFI = MyCI->DateTimeFormat;
   Console::WriteLine( " {0} {1}", myCulture, myDTFI->ShortTimePattern );
}

int main()
{
   
   // Displays the values of the pattern properties.
   Console::WriteLine( " CULTURE    PROPERTY VALUE" );
   PrintPattern( "en-US" );
   PrintPattern( "ja-JP" );
   PrintPattern( "fr-FR" );
}

/*

Remarks

The ShortTimePattern property defines the culture-specific format of date strings that are returned by calls to the DateTime.ToString and DateTimeOffset.ToString methods and by composite format strings that are supplied the "t" standard format string.

We recommend that you set the time separator in the short time pattern to an exact string instead of using the time separator placeholder. For example, to obtain the pattern h-mm-ss, set the short time pattern to "h-mm-ss".
