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.

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention.
