CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo Method (String, String)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System.String
The name of a culture.
For a list of predefined culture names, see the National Language Support (NLS) API Reference at the Go Global Developer Center.
The GetCultureInfo method obtains a cached, read-only culture object more quickly than a new culture object is created with the CultureInfo constructor. Your application should clear the cache with the ClearCachedData method.
The GetCultureInfo method is typically used by tools that need to efficiently load resources or create multiple instances of a culture.
Use the GetCultureInfo method to create a culture similar to name, but with different sorting and casing rules.
