    Is it possible to display only first letter for the DayColumn in radCalendar.
    By default it is displaying first 3 letters of the week name. I need to display only 1 letter. I found this below thread and it is possible in WinForms to change the format using dayNameFormat.

    How can I do the same for radCalender on Silverlight.

    Thank you.

    Hello Salini,

    In order to achieve the desired appearance of the names of the days you need to change the AbbreviatedDayNames of the current DateTimeFormat as shown below:
    this.radCalendar1.Culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US");
    this.radCalendar1.Culture.DateTimeFormat = new System.Globalization.DateTimeFormatInfo
        AbbreviatedDayNames = new string[] { "S", "M", "T", "W", "T", "F", "S" }

    Hopes this helps.
