ConvertDefaultLocale info  Overview  Group

The ConvertDefaultLocale function converts a special default locale value to an actual locale identifier.

LCID ConvertDefaultLocale(

    LCID Locale 

// special default locale value to be converted



A special default locale value that the function converts to an actual locale identifier.

The following list shows the special default locale values:




The systemís default locale.


The current userís default locale.


The language-neutral default locale. This is equivalent to the locale identifier created by calling the MAKELCID macro with a language identifier consisting of the LANG_NEUTRAL and SUBLANG_NEUTRAL values.

Any sublanguage neutral default locale

A locale identifier constructed by calling MAKELCID with a language identifier consisting of a primary language value, such as LANG_ENGLISH, and the SUBLANG_NEUTRAL value.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is the appropriate actual locale identifier.

If the function fails, the return value is the Locale parameter. The function fails when Locale is not one of the special default locale values listed above.


A call to ConvertDefaultLocale(LOCALE_SYSTEM_DEFAULT) is equivalent to a call to GetSystemDefaultLCID. A call to ConvertDefaultLocale(LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT) is equivalent to a call to GetUserDefaultLCID.

For more information about locale identifiers, see Locales and Language Identifiers.
