RadCalendar provides two types of navigation that allow you to switch or jump to next/previous month:

  • Previous/Next month - allows you to go to the previous/next month by clicking the "<" or ">" buttons

  • Jump N months forward/backward - allows you to jump N number of months (one view can have several months if Multiview Mode is enabled) forward or backward when you click the "<<" or ">>" buttons. The jump step is specified in the FastNavigationStep property. For example where two months are displayed and FastNavigationStep = "2", RadCalendar will jump 4 instead of 2 months ahead.  If the initial view shows January and February and the fast navigation button forward button is clicked then RadCalendar will show May and June.
