DateTimePicker in French or English ?

P: n/a
Hi Everybody,

At run time, regardless of the computer regional settings, is there a simple
way of swtiching the DateTime Picker in French (fr-CA) or in English (en-US)
depending of the user selection.

The user of my small application can switch the entire application to French
or English, but I dont know how to work with the DTP, that stays only in
English because of my computer regional settings.

I have tried the Culture functions with no luck.

Marcel,

The DateTime picker should act as are the system settings of the user.

In my opinion is the best is to do nothing about that.

It has not only to do with the language, but as well with the way the date
time is showed.
In Canada by instance it is like the complete English speaking world is
using on computers with English settings (with the exception of the USA). In
French Canada it is like the the French system.

You can set those settings to test in the language config of your computer
(assuming it is an NT type OS).

I hope this gives some idea's

Thanks Cor, you are right. There is no need to play with the langage because
of the user computer settings. I realize that after my posting,
