Let me clarify the satiation.
Another option is converting DataTime to string, but this approach will
require to override the control and all methods, because
CreateArchiveItemText method is protected.
You can also create a CustomDataSource and use it. The control expose CustomDataSource property.
We are taking for the control, not for the module. The dates culture depends on the CultureInfo. The following method CreateArchiveItemText
that creates the archive item text is private. There we set the DateFormat property.
return new DateTime(year, month,1).ToString(DateFormat);
