    [CLOSED] Resourcemanager.Locale is case sensitive

    I realize that this come from Extjs, but is it really necessary?

    If I set Locale to be "en-gb", Resource manager goes to default "en-en". This was not evcident until I came across the the issue described below:

    In the resultant datefield produced in this code enter the date "08/09/2012" and hit TAB. Note that Locale is set to "en-gb". The date will change to "09/08/12"
    If you now explicitly set Resourcemanger Locale to "en-GB", and repeat, the date will be in the expected format: "08/09/12"

    <%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Ext.Net" Namespace="Ext.Net" TagPrefix="ext" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head runat="server">
       <ext:ResourceManager ID="ResourceManager1" runat="server" Locale="en-gb" />
       <ext:Container runat="server">
                <ext:DateField ID="DateField1" runat="server" SelectOnFocus="true" Format="dd/MM/yy" >                                     
                 <ext:DateField ID="DateField2" runat="server" >                                     
    A by-product of this is that you will get HttpException invalid webresource errors because en-gb is not recognized.
    IS there a good reason to maintain case sensitivity here?

    The problem is related with resources reading from the assembly
    .NET resource reading are case sensitive

    I see that now:

    The CultureInfo class specifies a unique name for each culture, based on RFC 4646 (Windows Vista and later). The name is a combination of an ISO 639 two-letter lowercase culture code associated with a language and an ISO 3166 two-letter uppercase subculture code associated with a country or region.
    from http://arvindlounge.wordpress.com/20...culture-codes/

    It would be good to have the functionality exhibited here
    Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = New CultureInfo("en-gb")
    ..where the New CultureInfo object constructor corrects the case for you.

    Hi Roger,

    Yes, agreed, it would be good. Thank you for the suggestion.

    Though we don't change the case because a developer can define any custom Locale with any case that he wish.

    You can achieve it with your local Ext.NET sources applying the following change in the line #1461 of ResourceManager.cs: replace
     : this.Locale;
    : new CultureInfo(this.Locale).Name;
