PL - 'your' control, or FS nowadays?

target; 2.0.4 is past UI freeze
Comment 4 philipp.lohmann 2006-07-27 11:52:29 UTC
pl->er: as dicussed: the character taken is the first of the respactive dayname
from the locale data. However in chinese these seem to be all equal. The correct
solution would be to have an own entry in the locale data for this, however this
would be a rather nontrivial task.

i don't know whether some kind of interim solution is feasible ?

The character displayed is the Chinese glyph for "day", which is part of the
full name, of which the method just takes the first character. A full solution
would introduce a new locale data CalendarItem element such as OneCharacterName,
including API change and so on. Would be nice to have anyway, since the Excel
format codes allow such things as MMMMM or DDDDD for a one character
abbreviation, if I recall correctly.

However, an interim solution for Chinese locales could check the language and if
FullName elements all start with the same character take the first character of
the AbbrvName instead, which for Chinese is one character anyway. A bit ugly
hack, but maybe worth it. Should be implemented in the CalendarWrapper to have
it in one single location.
