CompareValidator, Dates, switching Thread culture, need help urgently


I'm developing a web application available in multiple languages.

When we switch language (via a drop down list), we switch the culture of the
current thread:

System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICul ture = SelectedCulture;

the problem is that I use a CompareValidator on dates:

dateCompareValidator.ValueToCompare = DateTime.Today.ToShortDateString();
<asp:CompareValidator id="dateCompareValidator" runat="server"
ControlToValidate="dbFooterStatusEndDate" Type="Date"
Operator="GreaterThanEqual" display="none"/>

if the current thread culture is not the same than the application server
culture, then I got exception (I've switched to english culture but my
server is a french server)

Page : http://localhost/Nemo.WebApplication...h/default.aspx
Méthode : System.Web
Message d'erreur : La valeur '6/29/2005' de la propriété ValueToCompare de
'dateCompareValidator' ne peut pas être convertie en type 'Date'.
Nom de l'exception : HttpException
Stack Trace : at
System.Web.UI.WebControls.CompareValidator.Control PropertiesValid()
at System.Web.UI.WebControls.BaseValidator.get_Proper tiesValid()
at System.Web.UI.WebControls.BaseValidator.Render(Htm lTextWriter writer)
at System.Web.UI.Control.RenderControl(HtmlTextWriter writer)
What is the solution to this problem?

Thanks alot.
