Datepicker short-days translation not working anymore

Hi! When I use this:

["Zo", "Ma", "Di", "Wo", "Do", "Vr", "Za"]

in the datepicker setup on the field 'Short Days' on the 'Advanced' tab of the element settings these days are not shown in the datepicker. The default (english) days are shown.

The Short Months value is used OK. The months are being translated.

In the HTML sourcecode of the form I do see:

data-shortdays="["Zo", "Ma", "Di", "Wo", "Do", "Vr", "Za"]"
data-shortmonths=["Jan","Feb","Mrt","Apr","Mei","Jun","Jul","Aug","Sep","Okt","Nov","Dec"]

So both values are being used as data elements on the input. But only the months are shown in the datepicker with the data-shortmonth values. The data-shortdays values are not used, but the english days are shown.

I also tried to add these values to the 'Extra params' on the 'General' tab. But that did not work either for the short-days.

I believe this did work on the previous version of CF5. I am now using 5.0.5 on Joomla 3.3.6. I'm not absolutely sure, but I thinks this changed after the update to CF 5.0.5. I know I had this working a while ago...

Kind regards,
Jip

Hi Max,

You're welcome. When can we expect the next update? I believe CF5 can also now be updated using the 'updates' of the Joomla extension manager?

Yes, and the new update has been published yesterday, you should have an update notification in the Joomla admin now.

Hi Jip,

One more note, unfortunately a small glitch was found this morning, the textareas in the edit page wouldn't start a new line when you press "Enter", so a new update is supposed to be released shortly!

OK, thanks for the heads-up!

In the CFv5-editor of the date picker, I see this line:
List of days, can be used to translate the picker's days, e.g: ['Di', 'Lu', 'Ma', 'Me', 'Je', 'Ve', 'Sa']

But when I use that code, the translation is not correct.

At your FAQ you wrote the text with double quote and that's the correct way.
So is it possible to change that line in the next update of CF?
