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

alt text http://thomasstock.net/currentlanguage.png

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.

  • Please note. If user changed UI language via interface, System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture.LCID keeps previous value. Use cookie "lcid" to get actual culture. – Alexey Zakharenko Sep 25 '15 at 8:21

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
