The standard date formats can be combined with string elements to achieve more advanced date processing and display.

C1Calendar's CalendarTitle and MonthViewTitle properties provide several pre-determined formats processed from the date picture strings elements for the Calendar Title and Month View Title display. For more information on these pre-determined formats, see Calendar Title Settings. For more information on how to use the format strings these when formatting the Calendar or Month View Title, see Apply Built-in Date Format Patterns to Calendar Title or Month Title.
