Set the First day of week only for the scheduler control



I am working with KendoUI 2016.1.322.

I need to change the first day of the week for the scheduler component based on user settings. I found this snippet in your KB

kendo.culture().calendar.firstDay = 1;  //2,3,.....

It works but in an app-wide mode, that is, not only the scheduler control changes, but also the datetimepicker control in the same form, they also show Tuesday as the first day of the week

And if later I move to another form, the setting continues active.

How can I only set the scheduler component to start on Tuesday without affecting the other components?

Hello Courtney,

Currently, the first day of the week in the Scheduler widget is a Kendo Culture dependant. The widget itself does not allow you to explicitly alter that for a single Scheduler widget instance. 

Having that said, I have converted the current thread to a feature request in our Feedback portal:


I would suggest you cast your vote for the above item in the portal.

I hope that the above explains the case. If you have any other questions about the Kendo widgets, please do not hesitate to contact us.
