I have a question about globalisation settings, I have an application which uses english language, but needs to have the Greek format for numbers and dates.
When I set culture="el-GR" uiCulture="el-GR" (I set this in the globalization section of web.config and even in each page I use) I expect the dates in the application to be in the format we use in Greece (dd/MM/yyyy) and the amounts displayed with (,) for
decimal places instead of period. But instead, the format returned is the same as en-US. When I change the format to spanish es-ES, the dates and decimal amounts are in the format I want.
Does anyone have any idea why this doesnt work as it is supposed to?
The other question is that if I use the spanish format, will I have any problems with my software? (I will get the dates and numbers displayed properly, but will the globalisation setting have any other effect in my application?
