We want to set all date forms to UK style dd/mm/yyyy. Is there a global setting to achieve this. If not what's the best way to achieve it?

Hi,

can you please check the MSDN and try to use the ASP.NET built-in globalization functionality that MonoX leverages. Basically you can use the web.config globalization configuration to set the UI culture, if you need custom culture setting let us know and we will provide you with further guidance.

Regards

can one change only the format strings they want (e.g. for time) at web.config?

There is no global option for setting date or time format in ASP.NET, you will need to create a custom culture in order to change the format or you need to set custom date & time format on e.g. BasePage PreInit or Init.

is there any way to declaratively register a custom culture in ASP.net or tell it to get the server settings regarding date/time formatting?
