Arabic internationalization issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a C# .NET application. I am using .Net Date time object. Datetime works in most of the language but in Arabic it never works. Should we do anything special for Arabic datetime format ?

    Regards,

    For Arabic datetime format, there is a discussion in below link:

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/943ae4ce-5a03-4ed8-8845-d31d2839306c/arabic-datetime-format

    It needs us to do some operations for the Arabic data time.

  • Thanks for your response.

    My understanding as per your response (is to set LongDatePattern to "yyyy-MM-dd" for Arabic)

    If i want to show a Arabic calender (.Net Calender control), will the date pattern holds good for Arabic calender control as well ?
