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

public virtual int LCID { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The culture identifier for the current CultureInfo.

In most cases, the culture identifier is mapped to the corresponding NLS locale identifier.

The following code example shows how to create a CultureInfo for Spanish (Spain) with the international sort order and another CultureInfo with the traditional sort order.

using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Globalization;

public class SamplesCultureInfo
{

   public static void Main()
   {

      // Creates and initializes the CultureInfo which uses the international sort.
      CultureInfo myCIintl = new CultureInfo("es-ES", false);

      // Creates and initializes the CultureInfo which uses the traditional sort.
      CultureInfo myCItrad = new CultureInfo(0x040A, false);

      // Displays the properties of each culture.
      Console.WriteLine("{0,-31}{1,-47}{2,-25}", "PROPERTY", "INTERNATIONAL", "TRADITIONAL");
      Console.WriteLine("{0,-31}{1,-47}{2,-25}", "CompareInfo", myCIintl.CompareInfo, myCItrad.CompareInfo);
      Console.WriteLine("{0,-31}{1,-47}{2,-25}", "DisplayName", myCIintl.DisplayName, myCItrad.DisplayName);
      Console.WriteLine("{0,-31}{1,-47}{2,-25}", "EnglishName", myCIintl.EnglishName, myCItrad.EnglishName);
      Console.WriteLine("{0,-31}{1,-47}{2,-25}", "IsNeutralCulture", myCIintl.IsNeutralCulture, myCItrad.IsNeutralCulture);
      Console.WriteLine("{0,-31}{1,-47}{2,-25}", "IsReadOnly", myCIintl.IsReadOnly, myCItrad.IsReadOnly);
      Console.WriteLine("{0,-31}{1,-47}{2,-25}", "LCID", myCIintl.LCID, myCItrad.LCID);
      Console.WriteLine("{0,-31}{1,-47}{2,-25}", "Name", myCIintl.Name, myCItrad.Name);

      Console.WriteLine("{0,-31}{1,-47}{2,-25}", "TextInfo", myCIintl.TextInfo, myCItrad.TextInfo);
      Console.WriteLine("{0,-31}{1,-47}{2,-25}", "ThreeLetterISOLanguageName", myCIintl.ThreeLetterISOLanguageName, myCItrad.ThreeLetterISOLanguageName);
      Console.WriteLine("{0,-31}{1,-47}{2,-25}", "ThreeLetterWindowsLanguageName", myCIintl.ThreeLetterWindowsLanguageName, myCItrad.ThreeLetterWindowsLanguageName);
      Console.WriteLine("{0,-31}{1,-47}{2,-25}", "TwoLetterISOLanguageName", myCIintl.TwoLetterISOLanguageName, myCItrad.TwoLetterISOLanguageName);
      Console.WriteLine();

      // Compare two strings using myCIintl.
      Console.WriteLine("Comparing \"llegar\" and \"lugar\"");
      Console.WriteLine("   With myCIintl.CompareInfo.Compare: {0}", myCIintl.CompareInfo.Compare("llegar", "lugar"));
      Console.WriteLine("   With myCItrad.CompareInfo.Compare: {0}", myCItrad.CompareInfo.Compare("llegar", "lugar"));

   }
