Definition

Returns a string containing the name of the current CultureInfo in the format languagecode2-country/regioncode2.

public:
 override System::String ^ ToString();
public override string ToString ();
override this.ToString : unit -> string
Public Overrides Function ToString () As String

Returns

A string containing the name of the current CultureInfo.

Remarks

This method overrides Object.ToString. It returns a normalized version of the culture name that is passed to the CultureInfo(String) or CultureInfo(String, Boolean) constructor or to the CreateSpecificCulture or GetCultureInfo(String) method. It normalizes the result string by converting characters in languagecode2 to lowercase and converting characters in country/regioncode2 to uppercase if necessary.

Predefined culture names on Windows systems are listed in the Language tag column in the list of language/region names supported by Windows. Culture names follow the standard defined by BCP 47.
