Property Value

The RegionInfo that represents the country/region used by the current thread.

The value of this property is based on the culture selected through the regional and language options portion of Control Panel. However, that information can change during the life of the AppDomain. The RegionInfo class does not automatically detect changes in the system settings, but the CurrentRegion property is updated when you call the ClearCachedData method.
