I am able to get 'Locale" information eg:=English(US) ,English(UK),et c...
from "Control Panel->regional options-> General" programatically using
'CultureInfo ' class. I could get the date format using below code

Thread.CurrentT hread.CurrentCu lture
=CultureInfo.Cr eateSpecificCul ture(Request.Us erLanguages[0]);

But We can put a specific data format under "Control Panel->regional
options-> Date" . It does not matter what LACALE is. Is there any way to get
that format from "Control Panel->regional options-> Date".

Please help me to solve this problem.

Hi Ishaan:

You can instantiate a CultureInfo and pass a true as the second
parameter to the constructor. This tells the ctor to use user-selected
culture settings from the system.

Hi Ishann:

You could populate a hidden form field with JavaScript to post to the
server, as shown here:
http://developer.irt.org/script/785.htm

Just be aware this is not a secure and foolproof way, as any client
could easily fake or forge a time (or just have the system clock set
incorrectly).

I want to allow users to enter dates in a text box in either the US "MM dd yy" format or the UK "dd MM yy" format. But how can I validate these dates? All the date functions e.g. ISdate, convert.ToDatetime etc fail on the US date format as the application and IIS is set to UK format. Its strange that the date format("12/03/06","MM dd yy") is interpretated correctly but format("12/22/06","MM dd yy") bombs out.
