Locale Property

DataSet.Locale Property

 

Gets or sets the locale information used to compare strings within the table.

Namespace:   System.Data
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

public CultureInfo Locale { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo

A CultureInfo that contains data about the user's machine locale. The default is null.

The Locale property specifies the locale for which sorting applies.

By default, setting the Locale for a DataSet also sets the Locale for each DataTable object in that DataSet to the same value.

System_CAPS_noteNote

In columns that contain expressions, the InvariantCulture is used. The CurrentCulture is ignored.

The following example gets the CultureInfo for a DataSet and prints the DisplayName and EnglishName properties.

Private Sub GetCultureInfo()
   Dim culture As System.Globalization.CultureInfo
   culture = DataSet1.Locale
   Console.WriteLine(culture.DisplayName, culture.EnglishName)
End Sub
