Hi, i am currently using kendo calendar control in my application i wanted to use multi-language for numbers and date formats and all other options in en-GB. I am currently using the code below to override the culture it works fine. 

var customCulture = $.extend({}, kendo.culture(), {
                name: "custom-culture",
                calendars: {
                    standard: {
                        days: {
                            names: ["Sonntag", "Montag", "Dienstag", "Mittwoch", "Donnerstag", "Freitag", "Samstag"],
                            namesAbbr: ["So", "Mo", "Di", "Mi", "Do", "Fr", "Sa"],
                            namesShort: ["So", "Mo", "Di", "Mi", "Do", "Fr", "Sa"]
                        },
                        months: {
                            names: ["January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"],
                            namesAbbr: ["Jan", "Feb", "Mrz", "Apr", "Mai", "Jun", "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Okt", "Nov", "Dez"]
                        },
                        patterns: {
                            d: "dd/MM/yyyy",
                            D: "dd MMMM yyyy",
                            F: "dd MMMM yyyy HH:mm:ss",
                            g: "dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm",
                            G: "dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm:ss",
                            m: "d MMMM",
                            M: "d MMMM",
                            s: "yyyy'-'MM'-'dd'T'HH':'mm':'ss",
                            t: "HH:mm",
                            T: "HH:mm:ss",
                            u: "yyyy'-'MM'-'dd HH':'mm':'ss'Z'",
                            y: "MMMM yyyy",
                            Y: "MMMM yyyy"
                        },
                        firstDay: 1
                    }
                }
            });

 

But the problem is i don't want to change the patterns setting from the clients culture i need to remove this from being over ridden. If i remove this patterns code piece it all stop working. Is there any way to do this ?? 

 

Thanks a lot in advise.

Hello Jessy,

The jQuery extend() method can be used to override a specific part of the kendo.culture method by setting its deep argument to true.

https://api.jquery.com/jquery.extend/#jQuery-extend-deep-target-object1-objectN

I made an example based on your scenario to demonstrate the desired behaviour:

http://dojo.telerik.com/eyiYe

Let me know if you need additional assistance.

Hi 

 

Would it be possible to  specify the calendars.standard.days option on a kendoCalendar.

Hi, Marc,

It is possible to customize the available cultures - any aspect of them as Stefan demonstrated.

You can see the full definition here:

https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/framework/globalization/definecultureinfo#customization

If you wish to declare your own culture with different day names, you can do that in the same way - just provide the custom values of the days in the expected format and the Kendo UI Calendar will start using them. Here is a runnable example which uses names of the days "First", "Second", "Third", etc.

https://dojo.telerik.com/@bubblemaster/uvOGagiP

Let me know in case further assistance is necessary.

Kind Regards,
Alex Hajigeorgieva
