how to add new cultures to the Compact Framework RRS feed

  • Question





    In a system at work, our current Compact Framework build does not support all the cultures (System.Globalization.CultureInfo) of the Full Framework.  How do we add more cultures?


    I know that on the Full Framework there is the CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder class, which is used to register custom cultures.  But that class is not supported in the Compact Framework.


    There is also the option of adding locales to Windows CE.  It is my understanding that the Compact Framework will pick those up and make them specific cultures.  But then those have no relationship to neutral cultures.


    Is there another way to do this, something similar to the CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder functionality?

  • This functionality is missing from Compact Framework and unfortunately there's no known work around to it either.
    You can however post this as a feature request at Microsoft Connect
