PersianCalendar support for DevExpress
Creating Line of Business applications using DevExpress WPF controls is just a breeze. The actual application is nice looking too! Since there are a couple of skins available and the good thing is the skin also changes the look and feel of standard WPF controls!
I’ve used my calendar library to develop a fully localizable solution. These controls support Gregorian, Hijri and Persian calendars so multicultural application development would be seamless, but the look and feel of my controls were a lot different than the ones provided by DevExpress. On the other hand, DevExpress only supports Gregorian calendar! So I needed to apply look and feel of DevExpress to my controls. It goes without saying that you can open the controls in Expression Blend and give it a style that mimics DevExpress look and feel, but that is not easy to do.
DevExpress provides a PopupEditBase control that can be used to display any control as a Popup. That seemed to be a good choice and it was easy to create a new control all in xaml markup:
The outcome is pretty good: seamless calendar support and look and feel.
