CultureInfo.LCID Property

Gets the culture identifier for the current CultureInfo.

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

public virtual int LCID { get; }
/** @property */
public int get_LCID ()

public function get LCID () : int

Property Value

The culture identifier for the current CultureInfo.

In most cases, the culture identifier is mapped to the corresponding National Language Support (NLS) locale identifier.

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

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,-33}{1,-25}{2,-25}", "PROPERTY", "INTERNATIONAL", "TRADITIONAL" );
      Console.WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,-25}{2,-25}", "CompareInfo", myCIintl.CompareInfo, myCItrad.CompareInfo );
      Console.WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,-25}{2,-25}", "DisplayName", myCIintl.DisplayName, myCItrad.DisplayName );
      Console.WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,-25}{2,-25}", "EnglishName", myCIintl.EnglishName, myCItrad.EnglishName );
      Console.WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,-25}{2,-25}", "IsNeutralCulture", myCIintl.IsNeutralCulture, myCItrad.IsNeutralCulture );

      Console.WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,-25}{2,-25}", "TextInfo", myCIintl.TextInfo, myCItrad.TextInfo );
      Console.WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,-25}{2,-25}", "ThreeLetterISOLanguageName", myCIintl.ThreeLetterISOLanguageName, myCItrad.ThreeLetterISOLanguageName );
      Console.WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,-25}{2,-25}", "ThreeLetterWindowsLanguageName", myCIintl.ThreeLetterWindowsLanguageName, myCItrad.ThreeLetterWindowsLanguageName );
      Console.WriteLine( "{0,-33}{1,-25}{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" ) );

   }
