Project Description
Current Date Extended skin object mimic the DotNetNuke standard Current Date skin objet to display dates using rare and optional calendars. In addition, you can display date from a different culture whatever the current selected culture. Please consult documentation for details.

Supported calendars are:
  • Gregorian
  • Hebrew
  • Hijri
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Persian
  • Taiwan
  • Thai Buddhist
  • Um Al Qura

Here some samples using rare and default calendars:

CalendarName CultureName Displayed Date
Hebrew he-IL יום חמישי כ"ז חשון תשע"א
he-IL יום חמישי 04 נובמבר 2010
Hijri ar-MA 28-ذو القعدة-1431
ar-MA 04 نونبر, 2010
Japanese ja-JP 平成 22年11月4日
ja-JP 2010年11月4日
Korean ko-KR 단기 4343년 11월 4일 목요일
ko-KR 2010년 11월 4일 목요일
Taiwan zh-TW 99年11月4日
zh-TW 2010年11月4日
ThaiBuddhist th-TH 4 พฤศจิกายน 2553
th-TH 4 พฤศจิกายน 2553
UmAlQura ar-SA 27/ذو القعدة/1431
ar-SA 28/ذو القعدة/1431


All displayed dates refer to the Thursday, November 04, 2010 (Gregorian calendar) using the DateFormat 'D'. For some cultures, you don't have to specify a rare calendar like ThaiBuddhist with Thai (th-TH) because it's the default calendar. Like with the standard DotNetNuke Current Date Skin Object, you can use any valid .Net date format.
