    Hi All

    I am developing one web application in which I have used the localization concept introduced in .net 2.0

    I am dispalying my UI based on the client culture.Now I want the information regarding the browser at client side as I can able to know about the language of client browser. And Hence I will be able to show the UI culture specific as to client browser.

    But I am not finding anything which can give me browser language information (example: if English en-US) through JAVA SCRIPT I have used navigator but it is not working with IE 6.0 & above Considering user is using IE I have to find another way

    Please help remember it all I want to do in JAVA SCRIPT     

    Thanks in advance

    When i want to get some server data into a javascript function, i tend to stick with using a client callback, the javascipt function can call a server side function without causing a full postback and have the UICulture returned to it in a string.

    That way, regardless of browser, you should be able to get the result you want.

    Let me know if you need help with it.

    I wanted to attach a zip file with a mini project for you to use, but it seems i can't.

    Here are the contents of the two files i have used, sorry it is VB.Net, i don't do C#.

    This is the .aspx page

    <%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="_Default" %>

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "">
    <html xmlns="">
    <head runat="server">
        <title>Untitled Page</title>
        <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
            function Culture(cult)
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" />

    This is the aspx.vb file

    Partial Class _Default
        Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
        Implements ICallbackEventHandler

        Public Function GetCallbackResult() As String Implements System.Web.UI.ICallbackEventHandler.GetCallbackResult
            Return Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture.Name
        End Function

        Public Sub RaiseCallbackEvent(ByVal eventArgument As String) Implements System.Web.UI.ICallbackEventHandler.RaiseCallbackEvent

        End Sub

        Protected Sub form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles form1.Load
            Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType, "getculture", "<script  type='text/javascript' language='javascript'>" & ClientScript.GetCallbackEventReference(Me, "", "Culture", "") & " ;</script>")
        End Sub
    End Class

    Hopefully that will help you out.  if you need it explaining, just let me know.
