CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder.CultureName Property

Gets the name of the culture being created.

Namespace:  System.Globalization
Assembly:  sysglobl (in sysglobl.dll)

public string CultureName { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The culture name of the current CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder object.

The return value is the name of the culture specified in the CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder constructor. If the specified culture name is the same as an existing culture, except for case, the return value is the name of the existing culture, not the specified culture name.

The CultureName property corresponds to the Name property.

The following code example creates a custom culture with a private use prefix, then lists a set of its properties. The first property lists the name of the culture.

// This example demonstrates a System.Globalization.Culture- 
// AndRegionInfoBuilder constructor and some of the properties  
// of the CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder object that is created. 
// Compile this example with a reference to sysglobl.dll. 

using System;
using System.Globalization;

{
    public static void Main() 
    {

// Construct a new, privately used culture that extends the en-US culture  
// provided by the .NET Framework. In this sample, the CultureAndRegion- 
// Types.Specific parameter creates a minimal CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder  
// object that you must populate with culture and region information.

    CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder cib = null;
    try {
        cib = new CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder(
                                          "x-en-US-sample",

// Populate the new CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder object with culture information.
