Char.ToLowerInvariant Method (Char)


Converts the value of a Unicode character to its lowercase equivalent using the casing rules of the invariant culture.

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

public static char ToLowerInvariant(
	char c


Type: System.Char

The Unicode character to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Char

The lowercase equivalent of the c parameter, or the unchanged value of c, if c is already lowercase or not alphabetic.

If your application is unaffected by the current culture and depends on the case of a character changing in a predictable way, then use the ToLowerInvariant method. The ToLowerInvariant method is equivalent to ToLower(Char, CultureInfo.InvariantCulture).

Use String.ToLowerInvariant to convert a string to lowercase.
