Explain how to prepare culture-specific formatting in .NET.
- The NumberFormatInfo class is used to define how symbols, currencies etc. are formatted based on specific cultures.
- The CutureInfo class can be used for this purpose.
- It represents information about a specific culture, including the culture names, the writing system, and the calendar.
- It also provides an access to objects that provide information for common operations like date formatting and string sorting.Example:
public class TestClass
public static void Main()
int i = 100; // Creates a CultureInfo for English in the U.S.
CultureInfo us = new CultureInfo("en-US"); // Display i formatted as currency for us.
Console.WriteLine(i.ToString("c", us)); // Creates a CultureInfo for French
CultureInfo fr = new CultureInfo("fr-FR"); //Displays i formatted as currency for france
