How can I get the selected language in the screenshot, from inside of a webpart?

alt text

I'm using SharePoint 2010. My webpart is a "visual web part" created in VS2010.

I'm trying things like SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser.RegionalSettings and SPContext.Current.Web.Language" but ofcourse these things have nothing to do with that setting. :-|

Can someone please help me? What property am I looking for.

Use the System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture.LCID to get the current LCID

also System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture.LCID is the same. –  Oleg Savelyev Apr 30 '13 at 13:22
