In my c# windows form I change culture to japanese as follows

Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("ja-JP");

Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo("ja-JP");

But in my date time pickers shows the date format in Regional and Language date format.

Is there any way to set the date format wihtout setting the custom format for the date time picker by changing the culture.

hope you have done googling for this issue. i found this link. it says that default date picker's culture would be the same as the local windows culture.

Try with some other third party control


I use
Console.WriteLine(string.Format(System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture("en-US"), "{0:ddd, dd MMM yyyy tt}", dateTimePicker1.Value));

to get am/pm.


Microsoft writes the datepicker and month controls cant be affected by Culture or CultureUI.[^]
