Problem with DateTime.Parse

Hello,

why does this not work (the OS runs with german settings):

DateTimeFormatI nfo dtFI = new DateTimeFormatI nfo();

dtFI.FullDateTi mePattern = "ddd MMM dd HH:mm:ss yyyy";
dtFI.Abbreviate dDayNames = new string[] {"Mon", "Tue", "Wed",
"Thu", "Fri", "Sat", "Sun"};
dtFI.Abbreviate dMonthNames = new string[] {"Jan", "Feb", "Mar",
"Apr", "May", "Jun", "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec", ""};
return DateTime.Parse( "Fri Aug 01 09:03:43 2003", dtFI);

Thanks for any suggestion.

Hello Tobias,

Try a simpler solution:

System.IFormatP rovider format =
new System.Globaliz ation.CultureIn fo("en-US", true);

return DateTime.Parse( "Fri Aug 01 09:03:43 2003", format);

Hello Dmitriy,

thanks for your reply.

With the addition of the pattern it works now fine.

Like this:

return DateTime.ParseE xact("Fri Aug 01 09:03:43 2003", "ddd MMM dd
HH:mm:ss yyyy", new System.Globaliz ation.CultureIn fo("en-US", true));

Tobias

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
