Default Make IE use fi resx file

I have one resource file named: Resource.resx
and another named: Resource.fi-FI.resx

In the code I have the following line in the Page_Load handler:

Page.Title = Resources.Resource.PageTitle;

But it always displays the page title from the Resource.resx file (in English). In IE I changed the language setting to Finnish[fi] and moved Finnish[fi] to the top. I even went to the service http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/multi/7-en.htm and it shows IE is set to use Finnish. But when I hit my ASP.Net 2.0 page, it still always shows in English. What's going on here?

Any tips?

Hi there,

You need to set the Culture and UICulture properties of the Page in the <%@Page directive, like this:

<%@ .... Culture="Auto" UICulture="Auto" ...>

Since setting in each page is troublesome you can also set this in the Web.config file under <system.web> with the <globalization> node like this:

    <globalization culture="auto" uiCulture="auto" />

As a third alternative, you can manually set the user's preferred culture (instead of automatically determining the culture from the browser) in the Global.asax file:

Sub Application_PreRequestHandlerExecute(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
  Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = New CultureInfo("fi-FI", False)
End Sub

Instead of the hardcoded fi-FI you could retrieve this information from the preferred language in the user's Profile for example.
