Customizing Localized Text in Blazor DatePicker

Right-To-Left

The DatePicker supports RTL (right-to-left) functionality for languages like Arabic and Hebrew to display the text in the right-to-left direction. Use the EnableRtl property to set the RTL direction.

The following code example initializes the DatePicker component in Arabic culture.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Calendars
@inject HttpClient Http;

<SfDatePicker TValue="DateTime?" EnableRtl=true Locale="ar"></SfDatePicker>

@code {
    [Inject]
    protected IJSRuntime JsRuntime { get; set; }
    protected override async Task OnInitializedAsync()
    {
        this.JsRuntime.Sf().LoadLocaleData(await Http.GetJsonAsync<object>("blazor-locale/src/ar.json")).SetCulture("ar");
    }
}
