Current culture of the environment in windows and asp.net, DOT NET Programming

How we get the current culture of the environment in windows and ASP.NET?

The "CultureInfo.CurrentCulture" represents the current culture of the environment. For illustrate if you are running Hindi it will show "hi-IN". Please note one thing in mind that "CurrentCulture" will only give you the culture on which your application is running.  If it is a windows application this will work great. But in ASP.NET 2.0 we need to know what culture the end user has.

For a real international website your different users can log in with different culture. For illustrate you can see from the given figure below different users are logging in with different regional settings. The Client browser sends the information in the request headers to the server. For illustrate a Korean user will send "KO" in the request headers to server. We can get the value by using the" Request.UserLanguages".

The Regional settings are defined on the user's browser as shown below. The Click on Tools - Internet options - Languages. You can also add languages in the language preference box. By Using "Move up" and "Move down" you may define the priority of the languages. In the figure below we have 4 languages defined with "Hindi" language set at the top priority. " The Request.UserLanguages" returns back an array of string with a sorted order defined in your language preference tab of the browser.
