i am using the Microsoft Ajax Toolkit
CalendarExtender control, to add calendar drop-down functionality to a regular TextBox:
<asp:TextBox ID="edStartDate" runat="server" /> <asp:CalendarExtender ID="CalendarExtender1" runat="server" TargetControlID="edStartDate" />
Which works fine for most client locales. It seems that the control does a server-request in order to convert a
DateTime into a localized
For example, today (October 1st, 2012) displays fine in Arabic
And also displays fine in Lower Sorbian
1. 10. 2012:
But some locales do not display properly in .NET
In this case i need some sort of
OnFormatDate event, that i can supply the correct localization of a date to a string. Which leads to my question:
How to override AjaxToolkit CalendarExtender date to string conversion?
Note: Don't confuse the question with the example.
- i'm asking how to customize the conversion of a date to a string in a
- even if i'm not dealing with a bug in .NET, it doesn't change my question
- even if i'm not dealing with a
CalendarExtender, i'm still asking the question
In your page... at the top of it... you have something like:
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" %>
Adding there something like(spanish for example)...
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" UICulture="es" Culture="es-MX" %>
and in your scriptmanager
will pretty much overwrite the local settings...
But i guess you only want this property to set in your CalendarExtender:
Format="dd/MM/yyyy" or however you like...
