How to set WPF application decimal separator format that does not depend on windows regional settings? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. Is there a way to set my application decimal and number format regardless of windows regional settings? What I would like is that all decimal values are formatted like this "1 000 000,00" and all integer values are formatted like this "1 000 000".

  • Hi.

    Try this.

    Dim newCulture As CultureInfo = new CultureInfo("en-US")
    CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = newCulture

    Best regards

  • While it is possible to "fix" the regional settings (even to ones you wrote yourself) this is generally a bad idea. Go one step back and tell us what do you think this would solve?

    You might actually be after format strings:
