CaseInsensitiveComparer.Default Property

Gets an instance of CaseInsensitiveComparer that is associated with the Thread.CurrentCulture of the current thread and that is always available.

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

public static CaseInsensitiveComparer Default { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.CaseInsensitiveComparer
An instance of CaseInsensitiveComparer that is associated with the Thread.CurrentCulture of the current thread.

When the CaseInsensitiveComparer instance is created using the parameterless constructor, the Thread.CurrentCulture of the current thread is saved. Comparison procedures use the saved culture to determine the sort order and casing rules; therefore, string comparisons might have different results depending on the culture. For more information on culture-specific comparisons, see the System.Globalization namespace and Encoding and Localization.
