National Language support (NLS) Locale Identifiers (Windows CE 5.0)
This appendix contains detailed information about national language support. The information presented here pertains to locale identifiers, LCTYPE Constants, country/region codes, and language identifiers.
A locale identifier (LCID) is a DWORD value containing the language identifier in the lower word and the sorting ID as well as a reserved value in the upper word. The identifier supplied in an LCID is a standard international numeric abbreviation. This LCID can uniquely identify one of the installed system-defined locales.
There are two predefined LCID values: LOCALE_SYSTEM_DEFAULT is the system default locale, and LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT is the current user's locale.
