The date and time patterns associated with the GregorianCalendar vary depending on the language. If the GregorianCalendar is selected in DateTimeFormatInfo.Calendar, GregorianCalendarTypes can be used to specify which date and time patterns to use in that DateTimeFormatInfo.
For Arabic cultures, more language versions of the Gregorian calendar are available. For example, you can use the French version of GregorianCalendar using the GregorianCalendarTypes.MiddleEastFrench value.
A culture that supports GregorianCalendar might not support all GregorianCalendar versions. The CultureInfo.Calendar and CultureInfo.OptionalCalendars properties specify the GregorianCalendar versions supported by that culture.
