Hi Camarate,

You can look at the Accept-Language request header to determine what preferred language is set on the users browser.  In that header you should see the language code and country code (i.e. "en-us") and based off of that code you can create a System.Globalization.CultureInfo object that you can use to determine how numbers are formatted in that language/country.

Does this get you in the right direction?

Hi disrupt,

Thanks for your reply.

But, the two link that you suggested are to format numbers with a comma thousand separators. What I want is to know the thousands separator character that is active on the client side.

Are you trying to perform the formatting with Javascript on the client, or with .NET on the server?

Hi daDarek,

Thanks for your suggestion. I'll be checking it. To answer your last question, I want to know the thousand separator in both environments, server and client side.


Hi disrupt,

Thanks for new suggestions. I'll be checking them.


Hi all,

I will be going to a outside service, so I can not be checking my emails for a while. So, I will reply you as soon as possible.

I am not confirm about your requirement. Let me know if this is solution

for(int i = numberVariable.length -1; i >= 0; i--){
    int temp = numberVariable[i];
        test_Array.add(0, temp%10);  
        temp = temp /10;

I need more time to check the suggestions because I'm involved entirely in another project.
