Public Overridable ReadOnly Property TextInfo As TextInfo

Property Value

Type: System.Globalization.TextInfo

The TextInfo that defines the writing system associated with the culture.

The TextInfo property provides culture-specific casing information for strings. To perform culture-insensitive casing, the application should use the TextInfo property of InvariantCulture.

The following code example shows how to create a CultureInfo for Spanish (Spain) with the international sort order and another CultureInfo with the traditional sort order.
