How to CultureInfo in VB.NET

In VB.NET, you can retrieve the current culture information using the CultureInfo class and the Thread.CurrentCulture property. The CultureInfo class provides access to various culture-related properties, such as the language, country/region, date and time formats, currency symbol, and more.

Here's an example of how to retrieve the current culture information:

Imports System.Globalization Imports System.Threading Module Program Sub Main() ' Get the current culture of the executing thread Dim currentCulture As CultureInfo = Thread.CurrentCulture ' Access various culture-related properties Console.WriteLine("Culture Name: " & currentCulture.Name) Console.WriteLine("Language: " & currentCulture.TwoLetterISOLanguageName) Console.WriteLine("Country/Region: " & currentCulture.TwoLetterISOCountryName) Console.WriteLine("Date Format: " & currentCulture.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern) Console.WriteLine("Currency Symbol: " & currentCulture.NumberFormat.CurrencySymbol) ' You can also set the current culture if needed ' Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = New CultureInfo("en-US") Console.ReadLine() End Sub End Module

This example retrieves the current culture information using Thread.CurrentCulture and displays various properties like the culture name, language, country/region, date format, and currency symbol. You can also set the current culture by assigning a new CultureInfo object to Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture.
