    I would like to display the calendar in as small an area as possible and so would prefer to show only the first letter of each day (M,T,W... in English). How could I do this?

    Also, I would find it useful to have a calendar that is a single column (or row) or number - a 'one line' calendar. The one square view that the present calendar has can be awkward in some form designs.  A datepicker is not appropriate here as it is required to see all dates in a month.

    Hello jas,

    To show only the first letter of the day-names you need to set  AbbreviatedDayNames of the current DateTimeFormat:

    calendar.Culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US")
                  DateTimeFormat = new System.Globalization.DateTimeFormatInfo()
                      AbbreviatedDayNames = "M,T,W,T,F,S,S".Split(',').ToArray()
    Also you can get a smaller control by defining a smaller width and height. Unfortunately there is no way to display the date in one row or column.
