<Binding ConverterCulture="cultureInfo"/>

XAML Values

  • cultureInfo
    A string specifying language and culture that follows the RFC 3066 standard. For example, U.S. English is "en-US". For more information on the format, see XmlLanguage (this is not literally the same property type in the strict CLR sense, but it uses the same string format).

Property Value

Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo
The CultureInfo used by the Converter.


Exception Condition

The Binding has already been attached to a target element, and cannot be modified.


If ConverterCulture is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the culture is determined by the Language property.

See Binding Markup Extension to learn how ConverterCulture can be set as a binding property through the Binding markup extension, which enables specifying an entire Binding as an attribute string.
