When I create a Forms application with a DatePicker and a TimePicker, both are always in English on Windows. They don't respect the current culture/language. With English I mean in the DatePicker English month names and order and in the TimePicker a 12 hour clock with AM/PM. In my culture we have the order day-month-year with of course the months in my language and over here we use a 24 hour clock (no AM/PM).

Thank you for this report! Let me test what the behavior is on Android and iOS to verify if this is only affecting Windows and I will update the report with my results.

I can see why we postponed implementing this; For the other platforms we used DateTime.Format to splash text that when you click on brings up the picker. UWP provides an uber rich control: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/uwp/api/windows.ui.xaml.controls.datepicker So we have to figure out what subset of that functionality we're gonna support...
