Attributes and Elements
The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.
Specifies whether date and time parsing methods use an adjusted set of rules to parse date strings that contain only a day, month, hour, and AM/PM designator.
|0||Date and time parsing methods do not use adjusted rules for parsing date strings that contain only a day, month, hour, and AM/PM designator.|
|1||Date and time parsing methods use adjusted rules for parsing date strings that contain only a day, month, hour, and AM/PM designator.|
||The root element in every configuration file used by the common language runtime and .NET Framework applications.|
||Contains information about runtime initialization options.|
<EnableAmPmParseAdjustment> element controls how the following methods parse a date string that contains a numeric day and month followed by an hour and an AM/PM designator (such as "4/10 6 AM"):
No other patterns are affected.
In .NET Core and .NET Native, the adjusted AM/PM parsing rules are enabled by default.
If the parsing adjustment rule is not enabled, the first digit of the string is interpreted as the hour of the 12-hour clock, and the remainder of the string except for the AM/PM designator is ignored. The date and time returned by the parsing method consists of the current date and the hour of the day extracted from the date string.
If the parsing adjustment rule is enabled, parsing method interpret the day and month as belonging to the current year, and interpret the time as the hour of the 12-hour clock.
The following table illustrates the difference in the DateTime value when the DateTime.Parse(String) method is used to parse the string ""4/10 6 AM" with the
enabled property set to "0" or "1". It assumes that today's date is January 5, 2017, and displays the date as if it is formatted using the specified culture's "G" format string.
