how to obtain "Measuremen t System" from "Regional Options"


Hello,
i've tried to obtain this data but i didn't found it.
The only thing i found is the "IsMetric" property in
RegionInfo.Curr entRegion, but it doesn't show me the
current setting.

Thank you

That should be sufficient. See how Platform SDK defines related setting:

LOCALE_IMEASURE
System of measurement. This value is 0 if the metric system (Système
International d'Unités, or S.I.) is used, and 1 if the U.S. system is used.
The maximum number of characters allowed for this string is two.

You can try to search MSDN for this topic and related ones.
