DataSet.Locale Property


Gets or sets the locale information used to compare strings within the table.

 property System::Globalization::CultureInfo ^ Locale { System::Globalization::CultureInfo ^ get(); void set(System::Globalization::CultureInfo ^ value); };
public System.Globalization.CultureInfo Locale { get; set; }
member this.Locale : System.Globalization.CultureInfo with get, set
Public Property Locale As CultureInfo

Property Value

A CultureInfo that contains data about the user's machine locale. The default is null.



The following example gets the CultureInfo for a DataSet and prints the DisplayName and EnglishName properties.

Private Sub GetCultureInfo()
   Dim culture As System.Globalization.CultureInfo
   culture = DataSet1.Locale
   Console.WriteLine(culture.DisplayName, culture.EnglishName)
End Sub


The Locale property specifies the locale for which sorting applies.

By default, setting the Locale for a DataSet also sets the Locale for each DataTable object in that DataSet to the same value.


In columns that contain expressions, the InvariantCulture is used. The CurrentCulture is ignored.
