Property Value

Type: System.String

The culture name in the format languagefull [country/regionfull] in English, where languagefull is the full name of the language and country/regionfull is the full name of the country/region.

For example, the EnglishName for the specific culture name en-US is "English (United States)".

The value of this property is the same, regardless of the language version of the .NET Framework.

The following code example displays several properties of the neutral cultures.


The example displays the older zh-CHS and zh-CHT culture names with the 0x0004 and 0x7C04 culture identifiers, respectively. However, your Windows Vista applications should use the zh-Hans name instead of zh-CHS and the zh-Hant name instead of zh-CHT. The zh-Hans and zh-Hant names represent the current standard, and should be used unless you have a reason for using the older names.
