get_default_date_format


Description:

public string get_default_date_format (bool with_weekday = false, bool with_day = true, bool with_year = false)

Gets the default translated date format. The function constructs a new string interpreting the with_weekday, with_day and with_year parameters so that it can be used with formatting functions like GLib.DateTime.format.

As the Granite.DateTime.get_default_time_format, the returned string is formatted, translated and is also mostly used to display the date in various user interfaces like the date displayed in the top panel.

Parameters:

with_weekday

if the returned string should contain the abbreviated weekday name

with_day

if the returned string should contain contain the day of the month as a decimal number (range 1 to 31)

with_year

if the returned string should contain the year as a decimal number including the century

Returns:

returns the formatted and located date string. If for some reason, the function could not determine the format to use, an empty string will be returned.
