Documentation for this section has not yet been entered.


The cultures have a hierarchy in which the parent of a specific culture is a neutral culture, the parent of a neutral culture is the CultureInfo.InvariantCulture, and the parent of the CultureInfo.InvariantCulture is the invariant culture itself. The parent culture encompasses only the set of information that is common among its children.

If the resources for the specific culture are not available in the system, the resources for the neutral culture are used. If the resources for the neutral culture are not available, the resources embedded in the main assembly are used. For more information on the resource fallback process, see Resource Fallback Process.
