CultureInfo.Calendar Property

Gets the default calendar used by the culture.

Namespace:  System.Globalization
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public virtual Calendar Calendar { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Globalization.Calendar
A Calendar that represents the default calendar used by the culture.

The user might choose to override some of the values associated with the current culture of Windows through the regional and language options portion of Control Panel. For example, the user might choose to display the date in a different format or to use a currency other than the default for the culture.

If UseUserOverride is true and the specified culture matches the current culture of Windows, the CultureInfo uses those overrides, including user settings for the properties of the DateTimeFormatInfo instance returned by the DateTimeFormat property, and the properties of the NumberFormatInfo instance returned by the NumberFormat property. If the user settings are incompatible with the culture associated with the CultureInfo, for example, if the selected calendar is not one of the OptionalCalendars, the results of the methods and the values of the properties are undefined.

Therefore, if UseUserOverride is true, the value of this property might be different from the default calendar used by the culture.

Your application changes the calendar used by the current CultureInfo by setting the Calendar property of DateTimeFormat, which is an instance of the DateTimeFormatInfo class. The new calendar must be one of the calendars listed in OptionalCalendars. DateTimeFormat also includes other properties that customize the date and time formatting associated with that Calendar.
