Gets or sets an alternate user interface culture suitable for console applications when the default graphic user interface culture is inappropriate.
Assembly: sysglobl (in sysglobl.dll)
In a set operation where the specified culture is not null, the property of the specified culture is not the same as the specified culture.
In a get operation, the property corresponds to the GetConsoleFallbackUICulture method. Specify null in a set operation to indicate that the culture defined by the current CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder object is the alternate user interface culture.
Languages such as Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, Urdu and Syriac are based on bi-directional text. Windows applications, which employ a graphical user interface, support bi-directional languages. However, console applications, which employ the text user interface of the operating system console, do not provide bi-directional support. Consequently, if a console application is localized to Arabic or Hebrew, it displays unreadable text on the console screen.
The user interface culture specifies the resources that an application needs to support user input and output, and by default is the same as the operating system culture. For example, the CurrentUICulture property returns an Arabic culture for an Arabic operating system. The application should use the property to retrieve a neutral culture suitable for a console application user interface.
