CultureInfo.IsReadOnly Property

Gets a value indicating whether the current CultureInfo is read-only.

[Visual Basic]
Public ReadOnly Property IsReadOnly As Boolean
[C#]
public bool IsReadOnly {get;}
[C++]
public: __property bool get_IsReadOnly();
[JScript]
public function get IsReadOnly() : Boolean;

Property Value

true if the current CultureInfo is read-only; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Remarks

If the CultureInfo is read-only, the DateTimeFormat and NumberFormat instances are also read-only.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following code example shows that CultureInfo.ReadOnly also helps protect the DateTimeFormatInfo and NumberFormatInfo instances associated with the CultureInfo.
