Initializes a new writable instance of the DateTimeFormatInfo class that is culture-independent (invariant).

Namespace:  System.Globalization
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
Public Sub New
public DateTimeFormatInfo()

Remarks

The properties of the DateTimeFormatInfo object created by this constructor can be modified.

This constructor creates a DateTimeFormatInfo object that represents the date and time information of the invariant culture. To create a DateTimeFormatInfo object for a specific culture, create a CultureInfo object for that culture and retrieve the DateTimeFormatInfo object returned by its CultureInfo.DateTimeFormat property.

The properties of the DateTimeFormatInfo object created by this constructor can be modified. However, you cannot modify the Calendar property, because the invariant culture supports only a localized version of the Gregorian calendar. To create a DateTimeFormatInfo object that uses a specific calendar, you must instantiate a CultureInfo object that supports that calendar and assign the calendar to the Calendar property of the DateTimeFormatInfo object returned by the CultureInfo.DateTimeFormat property.
