DataTable.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)
'Declaration
Public Property Locale As CultureInfo

Property Value

Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo
A CultureInfo that contains data about the user's machine locale. The default is the DataSet object's CultureInfo (returned by the Locale property) to which the DataTable belongs; if the table doesn't belong to a DataSet, the default is the current system CultureInfo.

A CultureInfo represents the software preferences of a particular culture or community.

When used for string comparisons, the CultureInfo affects sorting, comparisons, and filtering.

NoteNote

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

The following example sets the CultureInfo through the Locale and prints the ISO language name.

Private Sub ChangeCultureInfo(table As DataTable)
   ' Print the LCID  of the present CultureInfo.
   Console.WriteLine(table.Locale.LCID)

   ' Create a new CultureInfo for the United Kingdom. 
   Dim myCultureInfo As CultureInfo = New CultureInfo("en-gb")
   table.Locale = myCultureInfo

   ' Print the new LCID.
   Console.WriteLine(table.Locale.LCID) 
End Sub
