   array<Calendar^>^myOptCals = MyCI->OptionalCalendars;
   
   // Checks which ones are GregorianCalendar then determines the GregorianCalendar version.
   Console::WriteLine( "The ar-SA culture supports the following calendars:" );
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = myOptCals->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      Calendar^ cal = safe_cast<Calendar^>(myEnum->Current);

      {
         GregorianCalendar^ myGreCal = dynamic_cast<GregorianCalendar^>(cal);

         Console::WriteLine( " {0} ( {1})", cal, calType );
      }

Remarks

The date and time patterns associated with the GregorianCalendar vary depending on the language. If the GregorianCalendar is selected in DateTimeFormatInfo.Calendar, GregorianCalendarTypes can be used to specify which date and time patterns to use in that DateTimeFormatInfo.

For Arabic cultures, more language versions of the Gregorian calendar are available. For example, you can use the French version of GregorianCalendar using the MiddleEastFrench value.

A culture that supports GregorianCalendarTypes might not support all language versions of GregorianCalendar. The CultureInfo.Calendar and CultureInfo.OptionalCalendars properties specify the calendars supported by that culture. If GregorianCalendar is supported, GregorianCalendar.CalendarType can be used to determine which language versions of GregorianCalendar are supported.
