AssemblyName.CultureInfo Property

Gets or sets the culture supported by the assembly.

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

public CultureInfo CultureInfo { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo
An object that represents the culture supported by the assembly.

The following example emits a dynamic assembly and saves it to the current directory. When the assembly is created, the CultureInfo property is used to specify the culture, which is part of the assembly's display name.
