RegionInfo.Name Property

Gets the name or ISO 3166 two-letter country/region code for the current RegionInfo object.

Namespace: System.Globalization
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public virtual string Name { get; }
/** @property */
public String get_Name ()

public function get Name () : String

Property Value

The value specified by the name parameter of the System.Globalization.RegionInfo(String) constructor. The return value is in uppercase. -or- The two-letter code defined in ISO 3166 for the country/region specified by the culture parameter of the System.Globalization.RegionInfo(Int32) constructor. The return value is in uppercase.

If the current RegionInfo object is created with the System.Globalization.RegionInfo(Int32) constructor that takes a culture identifier parameter, the Name property value is one of the two-letter codes defined in ISO 3166 for the country/region and is formatted in uppercase. For example, the two-letter code for the United States is "US".

The predefined RegionInfo names are listed in the RegionInfo class topic. Use the DisplayName or EnglishName property to get the full name of the country/region.

The following code example displays the properties of the RegionInfo class.

using System;
using System.Globalization;

public class SamplesRegionInfo  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Displays the property values of the RegionInfo for "US".
      RegionInfo myRI1 = new RegionInfo( "US" );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Name:                         {0}", myRI1.Name );
      Console.WriteLine( "   DisplayName:                  {0}", myRI1.DisplayName );
      Console.WriteLine( "   EnglishName:                  {0}", myRI1.EnglishName );
      Console.WriteLine( "   IsMetric:                     {0}", myRI1.IsMetric );
      Console.WriteLine( "   ThreeLetterISORegionName:     {0}", myRI1.ThreeLetterISORegionName );
      Console.WriteLine( "   ThreeLetterWindowsRegionName: {0}", myRI1.ThreeLetterWindowsRegionName );
      Console.WriteLine( "   TwoLetterISORegionName:       {0}", myRI1.TwoLetterISORegionName );
      Console.WriteLine( "   CurrencySymbol:               {0}", myRI1.CurrencySymbol );
      Console.WriteLine( "   ISOCurrencySymbol:            {0}", myRI1.ISOCurrencySymbol );

   }
