    While coming across your documentation here, about the Calendar Type in RadCalendarView I wasn't succeeding with the below code snippet

    Locale locale= new Locale("ja_JP");
    Calendar _Calendar = Calendar.getInstance(locale);

    It just change the FirstDayOfWeek and thus days will be wrong (for example, Jul 16, 2015 should be Thursday , but it shows wednesday).

    Am i missed something, or is it a bug or something?

    Thank you for your interest in RadCalendarView.

    As the documentation states, you can change the language by using the setLocale method. So in order to change the language of the day names you need this line:


    I am not sure about the Japanese names, however I can reproduce the screenshot from the documentation which also changes the first day of the week to Monday, but the date seems to be in the correct column. Please clarify how to reproduce the issue with the wrong placement of the dates.

    As to the setCalendar method, it can be used for providing an instance of type different than GregorianCalendar. This can be a class that extends the Calendar class, however GregorianCalendar is the only implementation provided by Android so far. You may look for a JapaneseImperialCalendar implementation online or create one of your own.

    I hope this information helps.
