Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public virtual string NativeName { get; }
/** @property */
public String get_NativeName ()

public function get NativeName () : String

Property Value

The culture name in the format "<languagefull> (<country/regionfull>)" in the language that the culture is set to display, where <languagefull> is the full name of the language and <country/regionfull> is the full name of the country/region.

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

The culture's full name might not display properly if the system is not set to display the culture's language correctly. For example, if the CultureInfo.Name is "ja-JP" for Japanese (Japan), CultureInfo.NativeName does not display correctly on a system that is set to English only. However, multilingual operating systems, such as Windows 2000, display NativeName correctly.
