CultureInfo.ReadOnly(CultureInfo) CultureInfo.ReadOnly(CultureInfo) CultureInfo.ReadOnly(CultureInfo) CultureInfo.ReadOnly(CultureInfo) Method

Definition

Returns a read-only wrapper around the specified CultureInfo object.

public:
 static System::Globalization::CultureInfo ^ ReadOnly(System::Globalization::CultureInfo ^ ci);
public static System.Globalization.CultureInfo ReadOnly (System.Globalization.CultureInfo ci);
static member ReadOnly : System.Globalization.CultureInfo -> System.Globalization.CultureInfo
Public Shared Function ReadOnly (ci As CultureInfo) As CultureInfo

Parameters

Returns

A read-only CultureInfo wrapper around ci.

Exceptions

Examples

The following example shows that the ReadOnly method helps protect the DateTimeFormatInfo and NumberFormatInfo instances associated with the CultureInfo.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Globalization;
int main()
{
   
   // Creates a CultureInfo.
   CultureInfo^ myCI = gcnew CultureInfo( "en-US" );
   
   // Creates a read-only CultureInfo based on myCI -> 
   CultureInfo^ myReadOnlyCI = CultureInfo::ReadOnly( myCI );
   
   // Display the read-only status of each CultureInfo and their DateTimeFormat and NumberFormat properties.
   Console::WriteLine( "myCI is {0}.", myCI->IsReadOnly ? (String^)"read only" : "writable" );
   Console::WriteLine( "myCI -> DateTimeFormat is {0}.", myCI->DateTimeFormat->IsReadOnly ? (String^)"read only" : "writable" );
   Console::WriteLine( "myCI -> NumberFormat is {0}.", myCI->NumberFormat->IsReadOnly ? (String^)"read only" : "writable" );
   Console::WriteLine( "myReadOnlyCI is {0}.", myReadOnlyCI->IsReadOnly ? (String^)"read only" : "writable" );
   Console::WriteLine( "myReadOnlyCI -> DateTimeFormat is {0}.", myReadOnlyCI->DateTimeFormat->IsReadOnly ? (String^)"read only" : "writable" );
   Console::WriteLine( "myReadOnlyCI -> NumberFormat is {0}.", myReadOnlyCI->NumberFormat->IsReadOnly ? (String^)"read only" : "writable" );
}
