Program Explanation

This C# program is used to demonstrate culture names. The culture name is used to represent information about a specific culture including the names of the culture, the writing system, and the calendar used, as well as access to culture-specific objects that provide information for common operations, such as formatting dates and sorting strings.


Assign the CurrentThread.Name value as a MainThread. The Current Culture is used to create a CultureInfo that represents the specific culture that is associated with the specified name. Then CreateInstanceAndWrap() function is used to create a new instance of the specified type.

Parameters specify the assembly where the type is defined, and the name of the type. Then the Assembly.fullName is used to get the display name of the assembly. Then ShowCurrentCulture() function is used to display the name in the assembly.

Runtime Test Cases
Culture of MainThread in application domain ConsoleApplication32.vshoot.exe : nl-NL 
Culture of MainThread in application domain Domain2 : nl-NL
