    I'm working on an application using the Telerik Calendar for Xamarin Forms. I have a ContentPage where I show both a month view calendar, and below that, a agenda view calendar. The user can change language in the settings for this application, and therefore I need to be able to change the language for the calendars accordingly. I've implemented custom renderers for this, both for iOS and Android. For Android, the agenda view calendar is not updated (the language does not change), but it works for the calendar with month view. In iOS, this all works fine when setting Locale on the TKCalendar. On Android, I'm setting Locale on the RadCalendarView control.


    Is the localization for agenda view not working like this for Android? Is there any other properties that needs to be changed? I've attached one images from Android where I changed language from english to swedish. This works on iOS, but the agenda view calendar on Android is still in english.

    I would be really thankful for any help!

    Hello Joakim,

    Thank you for sending the detailed information on the case.

    The approach you used is correct and I am afraid this is an issue on our side related to AgendaView in Android.  I have logged a bug report on you behalf in our Feedback Portal,  here is the link:

    Calendar: [Android] Setting Locale to the Android Calendar does not take effect in AgendaView

    You can subscribe to the feedback item to get notified on status changes.  There isn't a suitable workaround I can suggest at the moment, so we will look into this with priority.
