What I would like is to check if a string contains a comman (,) or a point (.).
and if it does convert it to the current culture of the pc.


the string contains: 17.7
But the current culture of the pc uses the (,)
then it must be converted to 17,7

Is this possible?
Who knows the answer and is willing to help me?

P.S: I do programming in Visual Studio 2010 with C#
