Confirmation of using custom date format correctly. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Creating a web api to get json date array values in a custom date format of international standard yyyy-mm-dd. I'll be using CultureInfo of "en-us" for now but could add other cultures later. CultureInfo.DateTimeFormatInfo property can be created custom so that I can achieve these formats via the CultureInfo when date parting, etc. Key to keep unit tests consistent and in sync as I will be doing a lot of unit tests and string manipulation off of dates. Is this the best recommendation for this custom formatting behavior? Other recommendations? 

    Thank you.
