Examples

The following example demonstrates different signature translations based on different values supplied to LCIDConversionAttribute.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::InteropServices;
using namespace System::Reflection;

#define LCID_INSTALLED 1
#define LCID_SUPPORTED 2

   void CheckCurrentLCID()
   {

Remarks

You can apply this attribute to methods.

This attribute indicates that the marshaler should expect an LCID to be passed after the designated method argument. When calls are made from managed to unmanaged code, the marshaler supplies the LCID argument automatically.

Constructors

LCIDConversionAttribute(Int32) LCIDConversionAttribute(Int32) LCIDConversionAttribute(Int32) LCIDConversionAttribute(Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the LCIDConversionAttribute class with the position of the LCID in the unmanaged signature.
