TextWriter Constructor (IFormatProvider)

Initializes a new instance of the TextWriter class with the specified format provider.

Namespace:  System.IO
Assemblies:   mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
  System.IO (in System.IO.dll)

protected TextWriter(
	IFormatProvider formatProvider
)

Parameters

formatProvider
Type: System.IFormatProvider

An IFormatProvider object that controls formatting.

Use this constructor overload to provide a value for the FormatProvider property. The value of the FormatProvider property specifies the culture-specific formatting that is used when you call the Write and WriteLine methods. If you do not want to provide a format provider, you create an instance by using the TextWriter() constructor, which sets the FormatProvider property to null. When the FormatProvider property is null, the culture of the current thread is used for formatting.
