Reference3.Culture Property


Gets the culture string of a reference.

 property System::String ^ Culture { System::String ^ get(); };
 property Platform::String ^ Culture { Platform::String ^ get(); };
public string Culture { [System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(10)] get; }
[<get: System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(10)>]
member this.Culture : string
Public ReadOnly Property Culture As String

Property Value


The return value depends on the reference type.Reference TypeValue ReturnedAssemblyCulture string. For example, "EN-US" for English - United States.COMLocale ID. The string is the hex locale ID of the type library being referenced. For example, "0" for multilanguage or "409" for English - United States.




This example displays the culture value of each reference in an open Visual Basic or Visual C# project. To run this example as an add-in, see How to: Compile and Run the Automation Object Model Code Examples. For an additional example, see Reference3.
