Remarks

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

Note

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.
