public enum DayNameFormat

Member nameDescription
FirstLetterThe days of the week displayed with just the first letter. For example, M represents Monday.
FirstTwoLettersThe days of the week displayed with just the first two letters. For example, Mo represents Monday.
FullThe days of the week displayed in full format. For example, Monday.

The DayNameFormat enumeration represents the display formats for the days of the week in a Calendar control.

NoteNote

In some cultures, DayNameFormat.FirstLetter and DayNameFormat.FirstTwoLetter display identical values for one or more days of the week. In these cultures, consider using DayNameFormat.Shortest, which displays the shortest abbreviation possible without using identical abbreviations.

The following code example shows how to specify a format for the format for the days of the week in a Calendar control.
