Char.ToUpperInvariant Method (Char)


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

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

public static char ToUpperInvariant(
	char c


Type: System.Char

The Unicode character to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Char

The uppercase equivalent of the c parameter, or the unchanged value of c, if c is already uppercase 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, use the ToUpperInvariant method. The ToUpperInvariant method is equivalent to ToUpper(Char, CultureInfo.InvariantCulture).

Use String.ToUpperInvariant to convert a string to uppercase.
