Duration: 17 minutes
Summary: This video is a continuation of our localization discussion. One more item what I would like to add to the previous video is that calendars are affected by the culture you choose. So because we set the Culture and UICulture to de-DE in the web.config, when we drop a calendar on that page, the calendar month and days are displayed in German.
Then we continue our discussion to talk about the CultureInfo class. This class gives us more control in coding. Some of the methods we’ve been using have overloaded version that accepts a CultureInfo class (for example ToString()). We use the ToString method in our example to display dates and amounts in Spanish and Chinese.
Finally, we will through an example that shows us how to work with local resources. We will add the Local_Resources folder to the web site, and add a default resource and a French one (matching the name of the page). Then we will modify the label on the page to use that resource. Our page will detect the language coming in from the browser to display the welcome message.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
