Rad Calendar Overview

Key Features:

  • Culture awareness: RadCalendar is easily globalized. All properties are culture-aware and if not explicitly set, they would use the default thread culture for their values. You can easily change the text in the calendar's header, FirstDayOfWeek or DayMonthNamesFormat.

  • Month and year views: RadCalendar provides month and year views.

  • Flexible date navigation: RadCalendar provides two types of navigation: arrow buttons in the calendar header that would cycle through the list of days, months or years and clicking inbetween the two arrows would change the calendar view.

  • Fully Skinnable: RadCalendar is easily customizable through different skins available.

  • Keyboard support: Users can navigate through the items (dates) using keys.

  • Advanced Event-handling model: RadCalender supports routed events.
