Date and time format display options use the .NET time class functionalities and provide a broad spectrum of different possibilities.

Standard Formats

A standard date and time format string uses a single format specifier to define the text representation of a date and time value in line with the regional Windows settings. The MediaPortal helper texts describe the most commonly used and also meaningful formats in connection with the MediaPortal screens, however, there are various other formats that allow further tweaking of how the information is displayed.
