Setting current culture doesn't work




I have a multilanguage site. I want this site to display prices only in Danish kronam not depending on what language is actually chosen. In order to achieve this I tried following

            var currentCulture = new CultureInfo(CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.Name);

            currentCulture.NumberFormat.CurrencySymbol = "kr";
            currentCulture.NumberFormat.CurrencyPositivePattern = 3;
            currentCulture.NumberFormat.CurrencyNegativePattern = 3;

            CultureInfo.DefaultThreadCurrentCulture = currentCulture;
            CultureInfo.DefaultThreadCurrentUICulture = currentCulture;


inside initialization module:

public class FilterConfig : IConfigurableModule


After executing the code CultureInfo.Current culture shows correct CurrencySymbol, but when I'm accessing the page it falls back to one that correspond current language. What am I doing wrong?

I have two sites both added in episerver admin with different cultures.

If I use:


var currentCulture = new CultureInfo(System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.Name);

var symbol = currentCulture.NumberFormat.CurrencySymbol;


symbol will change depending on culture set on your site.


Not sure why you need to do this in a InitializableModule? I might have missed something :-)

No, I suppose I'm doing this incorrectly. Initialize module is really not the best place. But I want to change this thing in a culture automatically in order just to call .ToString("c")
