Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

This converter can only convert a CultureInfo object to and from a string.

For more information about type converters, see the TypeConverter base class and Implementing a Type Converter.

Note   You should never create an instance of CultureInfoConverter. Instead, call the GetConverter method of TypeDescriptor. For more information, see the examples in the TypeConverter base class.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following sample converts a variable of type CultureInfo to a string, and vice versa. First it constructs a CultureInfo variable using the Greek culture (represented by "el') and converts it to the string "Greek". Then it converts the string "Russian" to the CultureInfo representation "ru".

[Visual Basic] 
' The sample first constructs a CultureInfo variable using the Greek culture - 'el'.
Dim myCulture As New System.Globalization.CultureInfo("el")
Dim myCString As String = "Russian"
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(myCulture).ConvertTo(myCulture, GetType(String)))
' The following line will output 'ru' based on the string being converted.
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(myCulture).ConvertFrom(myCString))

[C#] 
// The sample first constructs a CultureInfo variable using the Greek culture - 'el'.
System.Globalization.CultureInfo myCulture= new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("el");
string myCString="Russian";
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(myCulture).ConvertTo(myCulture, typeof(string)));
// The following line will output 'ru' based on the string being converted.
Console.WriteLine(TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(myCulture).ConvertFrom(myCString));

[C++] 
// The sample first constructs a CultureInfo variable using the Greek culture - 'el'.
System::Globalization::CultureInfo* myCulture = new System::Globalization::CultureInfo(S"el");
String* myCString = S"Russian";
Console::WriteLine(TypeDescriptor::GetConverter(myCulture)->ConvertTo(myCulture, __typeof(String)));
// The following line will output 'ru' based on the string being converted.
Console::WriteLine(TypeDescriptor::GetConverter(myCulture)->ConvertFrom(myCString));
