Display Currency Symbols using ISO standards in ASP.NET

I stumbled across an interesting question about localization/globalization recently. The user wanted to print currency symbols using the ISO standards and wanted to find out if there was an easy way to do so using ASP.NET

Yes, there is! Use the RegionInfo.ISOCurrencySymbol Property. Here’s how


string symbol = RegionInfo.CurrentRegion.ISOCurrencySymbol;



Dim symbol As String = RegionInfo.CurrentRegion.ISOCurrencySymbol


The output on my system is USD, which is according to the ISO 4217 standards
