Changing the Culture of a Schedule

Each culture has different conventions and formats for displaying dates, time, numbers, and other information. This topic illustrates four different ways to set the culture of a C1Schedule using the Culture property.

Setting the Culture Using the Designer

To set the culture of a C1Schedule control, complete the following steps:

1.   Click once on the C1Schedule control to select it and navigate to the Properties window.

2.   Click the drop-down arrow next to Culture and select a culture from the list. For example, select Japanese (Japan).

Your C1Schedule now shows a Japanese culture format.

Setting the Culture in Source View

To set the culture in Source view, add Culture="Japanese (Japan)" to the <cc1:C1Schedule> tag. Once you've set this property, your markup will resemble the following:


<cc1:C1Schedule ID="C1Schedule1" runat="server" Culture="Japanese (Japan)">


Setting the Culture Programmatically

To set the culture programmatically, use the following instructions:

1.   Import the following namespace into your project:

      Visual Basic

Imports System.Globalization


using System.Globalization;

2.   Add the following code into the Page_Load event:

      Visual Basic

C1Schedule1.Culture = new CultureInfo("ja-JP")


C1Schedule1.Culture = new CultureInfo("ja-JP");

 What You've Accomplished

Your C1Schedule is now set to a Japanese culture format. In addition, you have learned how to set the Culture property using the Properties window, in Source view, and C# or Visual Basic code.
