Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

abstract IsNeutralCulture : bool with get
override IsNeutralCulture : bool with get

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the current CultureInfo represents a neutral culture; otherwise, false.

A neutral culture is a culture that is associated with a language but not with a country or region. It differs from a specific culture, which is a culture that is associated with both a language and a country or region. For example, fr is the name for the neutral French culture, while fr-FR is the name for the French culture in France.

If this property returns false, the culture is either a specific culture or the invariant culture.

The following code example determines which cultures using the Chinese language are neutral cultures.

System_CAPS_noteNote

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.
