    This is possible you will have to change the current culture within the actual EventCalender control.  What you will have to do is download the control's code from the downloads section of this website, then open up the project file and modify the ItemsTemplate.cs file you will have to add the following code at the top after the other using statements:

    using System.Globalization;

    using System.Threading;

    And then find the following method:

    public DataBoundCalendarHeader(DateTime VisibleDate)

    and add this code after the last line in that method:

    Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("is-IS");

    This will change the current culture info for the dates returned to "Icelandic - Iceland"

    In the project folder for the event calendar control there will be a bin folder with a Debug or Release folder in it.  There should be an EventCalendar.dll file in there just after you Build the Solution.  You would copy this file to the bin folder of your the Club Starter Kit and replace it.  You probably want to make a copy of the existing EventCalendar.dll file before you do this and store it in a safe place just to be sure.  You then can test it out and see if it works.  If it does then simply upload that file to your server and replace the existing one.

    Hope this helps... :)

    Actually the code that I gave you can be implemented on each of your pages in the <script> tag by implementing the Page_Load sub and put the Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = New CultureInfo("is-IS") in there.  This way all data that is displayed in some kind of control and has a specific data type (dates, currency, etc.) will be formatted properly by the Culture Info.  So I believe that the dates for Icelandic would be in the format 11.3.2006 24h time.  If you don't want this automatic formatting you can change the SQL code that returns the data and use the CONVERT function.  Something like CONVERT(varchar(11), <DATE_FIELD_IN_DATABASE_NAME>, 103).

    Hope this helps

    If you wnat this for all the pages on your site, then the simplest solution is to modify web.config and add the following:



    <globalization culture="is-IS"/>

    This will change the culture for the whole site

    hey i figure it out :)
    my mistake was that i was adding a new line to web. config file  but i just had to add lines into the  globalization command  , like this

    <globalization requestEncoding="utf-8" responseEncoding="utf-8" culture="is-IS" uiCulture="is-IS" />


    so basicly i just added  culture="is-IS" uiCulture="is-IS"


    well thx for all the help guys


    best regards
