NumberSubstitution.CultureOverride Property

Gets or sets a value which identifies which culture to use when the value of the CultureSource property is set to Override.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public CultureInfo CultureOverride { get; set; }
<object NumberSubstitution.CultureOverrideProperty="CultureInfo"/>

XAML Values


String representation of a CultureInfo value. For example, the string, "en-us", represents the United States English culture setting.

Property Value

Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo
A CultureInfo value that represents the culture that is used as an override.

Identifier field


Metadata properties set to true


The default value of the CultureSource property is null, which is interpreted as the "en-us" (United States English) culture.

If CultureSource is not set to Override, this property is ignored.

This reference page represents two identically named but not entirely equivalent usages for the CultureOverride property:

  • You can set this property in code on a NumberSubstitution instance, as a common language runtime (CLR) property. In this usage, the property is not backed by a dependency property identifier, it is backed by a private field and does not act as a dependency property.

  • You can set this property as an attached property usage in XAML. The attached property usage is the reason why this property has a Dependency Property Information section, because the attached property is backed by a dependency property identifier. In XAML, the usage is <object NumberSubstitution.CultureOverride="value".../>, where object is an object element where the specified number substitution logic applies, and value is one of the string-format values as explained in XAML Values. In code, the attached property usage is supported by GetCultureOverride and SetCultureOverride.
