Gets the name of the culture associated with the current TextInfo object.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
A TextInfo object is created from a specific culture, and the property returns the name of that culture.
The property always reflects a specific culture rather than a neutral culture. If CultureInfo.Name has a neutral culture as its value, then the corresponding has as its value an arbitrary specific culture that uses the same language. For example, the Name property returns "en" for the English neutral culture, but the corresponding property returns "en-US" for the English (United States) culture. If the TextInfo object is associated with a specific culture rather than a neutral culture, the value of its property is always identical to the Name property value of its associated CultureInfo object.
Similarly, the property never reflects a particular sort. It always corresponds to a default sort order. For example, the default sort order for Spanish (Spain) is the international sort order. If CultureInfo.Name is es-ES_tradnl (Spanish with the traditional sort order) then the corresponding is es-ES (Spanish with the default international sort order).
