Property Value

Type: System.StringComparer

A new StringComparer object.

TheStringComparer returned by the InvariantCulture property compares strings in a linguistically relevant manner, but it is not suitable for display in any particular culture. Its major application is to order strings in a way that will be identical across cultures.

The invariant culture is the CultureInfo object returned by the InvariantCulture property.

The InvariantCulture property actually returns an instance of an anonymous class derived from the StringComparer class.

The following code example demonstrates the properties and the Create method of the StringComparer class. The example illustrates how different StringComparer objects sort three versions of the Latin letter I.
