LCIDConversionAttribute Class

Indicates that a method's unmanaged signature expects a locale identifier (LCID) parameter.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

'Declaration
<ComVisibleAttribute(True)> _
<AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Method, Inherited := False)> _
Public NotInheritable Class LCIDConversionAttribute _
	Inherits Attribute
'Usage
Dim instance As LCIDConversionAttribute

You can apply this attribute to methods.

This attribute indicates that the marshaler should expect an LCID to be passed after the designated method argument. When calls are made from managed to unmanaged code, the marshaler supplies the LCID argument automatically.

The following example demonstrates different signature translations based on different values supplied to LCIDConversionAttribute.

Class LCIDAttrSampler

    Const LCID_INSTALLED As Integer = 1
    Const LCID_SUPPORTED As Integer = 2

    <DllImport("KERNEL32.DLL", EntryPoint:="IsValidLocale", _

    CallingConvention:=CallingConvention.StdCall), _

    Public Shared Function IsValidLocale(ByVal dwFlags As Integer) As Boolean 
    End Function

        Dim mthIfo As MethodInfo = Me.GetType().GetMethod("IsValidLocale")
        Dim attr As Attribute = Attribute.GetCustomAttribute(mthIfo, GetType(LCIDConversionAttribute))

        If Not(attr Is Nothing) Then 
            Dim lcidAttr As LCIDConversionAttribute = CType(attr, LCIDConversionAttribute)
            Console.WriteLine("Position of the LCID argument in the unmanaged signature: " + lcidAttr.Value.ToString())
        End If 

        Dim res As Boolean = IsValidLocale(LCID_INSTALLED)
        Console.WriteLine("Result LCID_INSTALLED " + res.ToString())
        res = IsValidLocale(LCID_SUPPORTED)
        Console.WriteLine("Result LCID_SUPPORTED " + res.ToString())
    End Sub

        Dim smpl As LCIDAttrSampler = New LCIDAttrSampler()
        smpl.CheckCurrentLCID()
    End Sub
