Event Data

The CustomWeekDayAbbreviation event's data class is DevExpress.XtraEditors.Controls.CustomWeekDayAbbreviationEventArgs.


The calendar shows week abbreviations based on the application UI culture. You can specify the abbreviation length using the RepositoryItemDateEdit.WeekDayAbbreviationLength property.

However, if this setting does not meet your needs, you can provide custom week day abbreviations handling the CustomWeekDayAbbreviation event. Use the Day event argument to determine the day of the week being processed, and set the Value argument to the required value. The DefaultDayAbbreviation argument gets the value used by default. The code below shows how to provide custom captions for Sunday and Saturday.

private void dateEdit1_Properties_CustomWeekDayAbbreviation(object sender, CustomWeekDayAbbreviationEventArgs e) {
    RepositoryItemDateEdit item = sender as RepositoryItemDateEdit;
    if(item == null) return;
    DateEdit edit = item.OwnerEdit as DateEdit;
    if(edit == null) return;
    PopupDateEditForm popup = edit.GetPopupEditForm() as PopupDateEditForm;
    if(popup == null) return;
    CalendarControl calendar = popup.Calendar;
    if(calendar == null) return;
    if(e.Day == calendar.DateFormat.DayNames[0]) e.Value = "SUNDAY";
    if(e.Day == calendar.DateFormat.DayNames[6]) e.Value = "SATURDAY";

See the result below.
