TextInfo.LCID Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets the culture identifier for the culture associated with the current TextInfo object.

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

public int LCID { get; }
/** @property */
public int get_LCID ()

public function get LCID () : int

Property Value

A number that identifies the culture that the current TextInfo object was created from.

Locale identifier (LCID) is another name for culture identifier.

The LCID property is meaningful for a TextInfo object derived from a specific culture, but not for an object derived from a neutral culture. Consequently, the LCID property that corresponds to a neutral culture returns the LCID of an arbitrary specific culture that uses the same language rather than the LCID of the neutral culture. For example, the CultureInfo.LCID property returns 0x0009 for the English (en) neutral culture, but the corresponding LCID property might return 0x0409 for the English-United States (en-US) specific culture.
