DataSet.Locale Property

Gets or sets the locale information used to compare strings within the table.

Namespace:  System.Data
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

public CultureInfo Locale { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo
A CultureInfo that contains data about the user's machine locale. The default is null.

The Locale property specifies the locale for which sorting applies.

By default, setting the Locale for a DataSet also sets the Locale for each DataTable object in that DataSet to the same value.

NoteNote

In columns that contain expressions, the InvariantCulture is used. The CurrentCulture is ignored.

The following example gets the CultureInfo for a DataSet and prints the DisplayName and EnglishName properties.

Private Sub GetCultureInfo()
   Dim culture As System.Globalization.CultureInfo
   culture = DataSet1.Locale
   Console.WriteLine(culture.DisplayName, culture.EnglishName)
End Sub
