public CultureInfo Culture { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo

A CultureInfo that specifies the locale of the requested input language.

The Culture property specifies a CultureInfo that defines a set of user preference information dependent on the user's language, sublanguage, country/region, and cultural conventions.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the Form.InputLanguageChanging event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type Form named Form1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the Form.InputLanguageChanging event.

private void Form1_InputLanguageChanging(Object sender, InputLanguageChangingEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "InputLanguage", e.InputLanguage );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Culture", e.Culture );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "SysCharSet", e.SysCharSet );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Cancel", e.Cancel );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "InputLanguageChanging Event" );
}
