Description Mike 2016-11-04 08:47:02 UTC
When I create CultureInfo ci = new CultureInfo("ug-CN") in Portable dll;  It will throw exception in Android and iOS.  But Windows these all fine,   it was in the System.Globalization assembly.

I think it would be very helpful if Xamarin could auto connect the windows culture to Android or iOS.

@Marek Safar, Is that a open source project? If yes, could you provide the link?
Comment 3 Marek Safar 2016-11-22 15:56:21 UTC
It's open source code, relevant commit https://github.com/mono/mono/commit/d0b9c5ebbb0424cc6482c4720957bb758860d2d2

@Marek Safar, Thank you very much.  weird..., I thought Xamarin base class library is different than mono, because mono looks like support Duplex channel, but in xamarin still can't do it(for Android and iOS). https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=41392
