Property Value

Type: System.String

The name of a culture.

The Name and CultureInfo.Name properties can have different values. For example, an LCID property value of hexadecimal 0x10407 identifies an alternate sort culture that sorts names as they might appear in a German telephone book. The Name property has a value of "de-de_phoneb", whereas the CultureInfo.Name property of the associated German (Germany) culture has a value of "de-DE".

The following example compares three strings using the fr-FR and ja-JP cultures. The Name property is used to display the name of each culture.
