C# | String.ToUpperInvariant Method
  • Last Updated : 01 Feb, 2019

String.ToUpperInvariant Method is used to get a copy of this String object converted to uppercase using the casing rules of the invariant culture. Here “invariant culture” represents a culture that is culture-insensitive.

Syntax:

public string ToUpperInvariant ();

Return Value: The return type of this method is System.String. This method will return a string which is the uppercase equivalent of the current string.

Below given are some examples to understand the implementation in a better way:

Example 1:






// C# program to illustrate
// ToUpperInvariant() method
using System;
  
public class GFG {
  
    // Main method
    static public void Main()
    {
  
        // varibles
        string strA = "WelCome tO GeeKSfOrGeeKs";
        string strB;
  
        // Convert strA into lowercase
        // using ToLowerInvariant() method
        strB = strA.ToUpperInvariant();
  
        // Display string before ToUpperInvariant() method
        Console.WriteLine("String before ToUpperInvariant:");
        Console.WriteLine(strA);
        Console.WriteLine();
  
        // Display string after ToUpperInvariant() method
        Console.WriteLine("String after ToUpperInvariant:");
        Console.WriteLine(strB);
    }
}


Output:

String before ToUpperInvariant:
WelCome tO GeeKSfOrGeeKs

String after ToUpperInvariant:
WELCOME TO GEEKSFORGEEKS

Example 2:




// C# program to illustrate 
// ToUpperInvariant() Method
using System;
  
public class GFG {
  
    // Main method
    static public void Main()
    {
  
        // Calling function
        Convert("GEeks");
        Convert("geeks");
        Convert("GEEKS");
    }
  
    static void Convert(String value)
    {
  
        // Display  strings
        Console.WriteLine("string 1:  {0}", value);
  
        // Convert sting into Uppercase
        // using ToUpperInvariant() method
        value = value.ToUpperInvariant();
  
        // Display the Lowercase strings
        Console.WriteLine("string 2:  {0}", value);
    }
}


Output:

string 1:  GEeks
string 2:  GEEKS
string 1:  geeks
string 2:  GEEKS
string 1:  GEEKS
string 2:  GEEKS

Note:

  • The invariant culture represents a culture that is culture-insensitive. It is associated with the English language but not with a specific country or region.
  • ToUpperInvariant() method does not modify the value of the current instance. Instead, it returns a new string in which all characters in the current instance are converted to uppercase.
  • This method can’t be overloaded if you try to overload this method, it will give you compile time error.
