RegionInfo.DisplayName Property

Gets the full name of the country/region in the language of the localized version of .NET Framework.

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

public virtual string DisplayName { get; }
/** @property */
public String get_DisplayName ()

public function get DisplayName () : String

Not applicable.

Property Value

The full name of the country/region in the language of the localized version of .NET Framework.

The DisplayName property displays the country/region name in the language of the localized version of .NET Framework. For example, the DisplayName property displays the country/region in English on the English version of the .NET Framework, and in Spanish on the Spanish version of the .NET Framework.

The value of the DisplayName property is taken from the resource files in the language of the current user interface culture, represented by CurrentUICulture. Custom regions or those synthesized from the operating system might not have resource information, in which case the value for DisplayName is the same as the value of the NativeName property.

The following code example displays the properties of the RegionInfo class.

using System;
using System.Globalization;

public class SamplesRegionInfo  {

   public static void Main()  {

      // Displays the property values of the RegionInfo for "US".
      RegionInfo myRI1 = new RegionInfo( "US" );
      Console.WriteLine( "   Name:                         {0}", myRI1.Name );
      Console.WriteLine( "   DisplayName:                  {0}", myRI1.DisplayName );
      Console.WriteLine( "   EnglishName:                  {0}", myRI1.EnglishName );
      Console.WriteLine( "   IsMetric:                     {0}", myRI1.IsMetric );
      Console.WriteLine( "   ThreeLetterISORegionName:     {0}", myRI1.ThreeLetterISORegionName );
      Console.WriteLine( "   ThreeLetterWindowsRegionName: {0}", myRI1.ThreeLetterWindowsRegionName );
      Console.WriteLine( "   TwoLetterISORegionName:       {0}", myRI1.TwoLetterISORegionName );
      Console.WriteLine( "   CurrencySymbol:               {0}", myRI1.CurrencySymbol );
      Console.WriteLine( "   ISOCurrencySymbol:            {0}", myRI1.ISOCurrencySymbol );

   }

}
