Hello Hani,

This issue has been fixed recently and changes will take effect in the Q2 2009 SP1 release, which will be available for download later this week. Please upgrade then.

Looking at Demos I notice one important bug:

Please notice that Arabic (Hijri) years are different that normal years, for example; the year is now 2009 while in Hijri it is 1430, When i open the DatePicker and Select (Today) while the culture is Arabic (saudi Arabia), it Moves me to شوال 2009, while it should move to شوال 1430.

I also think that you should distinguish between using Arabic Words for Normal Calendar, or using Arabic Calendar (Hijri: هجري) calendar.


Ah, one more bug in the Calendar Control, when you change rendering to Vertical, and then change the view to 21X3, you will get to dates only, S and M :), all months is Saturdays and Sundays, this is heaven :)

Hello Alaa Majzoub,

Only the Gregorian calendar is supported on the client. If you need to use Arabic years, you need to set AutoPostBack="true" to the RadCalendar control, so that its views are generated on the server each time when navigating. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Vertical rendering is supported only with 7x6 layout, otherwise there is no way to render the week days properly - we are unable to fit 7 days in 3 rows :)

Best wishes,

Thank you Dimo,

Then, i suggest not using Hijri month names (شعبان, رمضان) in Gregorian Calendar, this will lead to bugs and misbehavior,  you can though use Arabic month names (كانون الاول, كانون الثاني, ابريل).

As for the vertical behavior, I understand that it is difficult to put 7 days in 3 rows, that's why i reported it, I were in your shoes I would have disabled showing days, or prevent 21X3 when it is vertical.

My two cents, thanks

Hello Alaa Majzoub,

Thank you for your feedback.

The month names that appear in the RadCalendar titlebar are generated by the .NET framework, according to the selected culture, but we can research if there is a way to change this.
