CompareInfo

Synopsis

This class defines methods of string comparison that follow culture-specific rules. The CultureInfo.CompareInfo property contains an instance of this class. The Compare() method and other string searching methods, such as IndexOf() and IsPrefix(), can be passed a set of CompareOptions, which provide culture specific flags related to strings. The GetCompareInfo() method is used instead of a public constructor to retrieve an instance of this class.

public class CompareInfo : System.Runtime.Serialization.IDeserializationCallback {
// Public Instance Properties
   public field int LCID{get; } 
// Public Static Methods

        int culture);  
   public static method CompareInfo GetCompareInfo(

   public static method CompareInfo GetCompareInfo(
        string name);

        int offset1, int length1, string string2, 
        int offset2, int length2);
