Internationalize Your ASP.NET Applications (Part 2 of 3) : Page 5

See how to use culture settings to localize images, database content, numbers, currencies, and dates in your ASP.NET applications.




Building the Right Environment to Support AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning

Another option that you can use in the web site to deal with localized images is create the images dynamically. When a client requests an image the code creates that image on the fly and sends it straight out to the site visitor. The sample site includes an example page called image.aspx that returns a GIF file containing the name and identifier for the current culture. When you open the page in a web browser, the culture in the image matches the culture you have chosen (see Figure 4). The page is a normal ASP.NET page, but rather than returning HTML to the browser, it returns a GIF file. Unlike the image examples you already saw, the application creates these images on-the-fly based on your CurrentCulture and CurrentUICulture settings.
