Hi Tsair,

Use the CultureInfo class. Change the CultureInfo in the CurrentThread class

System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCultu re =
CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture("en-US");
label1.Text = DateTime.Now.ToString();

Store the CultureInfo reference before changing it if you need to change it back to the original.

IMHO it is always wrong to mess with cultures.
If you really must have a specific format then format the dates explicitly.
You should then provide the user with the option to specify what format HE
wants...oh the culture already does that!
