    I am using the workweek view in the Kendo Scheduler. I would like to know how the Kendo reads the weekend in workweek view. Is it always Saturday and Sunday or do you consider the regional settings. (Example for Saudi Arab weekend is Thursday and Friday)

    Hi Kumeri,

    The easiest way to change the weekend in the default week view would be via its:

    - workWeekStart setting:
    - workWeekEnd setting:

    I have prepared a sample illustrating the scenario:,css,js,output

    However, you could always implement a custom view to further extend the view:

    Let me know if you have further questions.

    Hi, i found that the workDays attribute only work for workWeek and it doesn't work in week. Is this stated in the documentation? because i couldn't find it.

    Can you please share some additional details on what is not working? You can set the workDays option to the Scheduler to define the working days for all Views. Or you can set it through the configuration of an individual View.

    For example in the workWeek view only the defined workDays are displayed:

    Where in the week View all days are rendered, however, the work days and non-working days are styled differently:

    Am I missing something in the behavior you are reporting? Can you provide a runnable example where I can observe the reported behavior?
