Calendar view is missing in View selector

If we create SharePoint list calendar view programmatically, there is an issue, this view disappears from view selector in list web part. There is manual step needed to enable/disable View selector in web part properties. Here is a script to do it programmatically by PowerShell (code in C# is similar).

Add-PSSnapin microsoft.sharepoint.powershell -ea 0

$assembly=[void][reflection.assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c")

$webUrl = "https://yoursitecollectionurl"
$listName = "Your list with Calendar view"

$web = Get-SPWeb $webUrl

$list = $web.Lists[$listName]

#select all views other than calendar
$views = $list.Views ' where {$_.Title -notmatch "Calendar"} ' select Title, Url

foreach ($view in $views)
    $pageUrl = $webUrl + "/" + $view.Url
    $webpartmanager = $web.GetLimitedWebPartManager($pageUrl, [System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.PersonalizationScope]::Shared)

 #see list of web parts on the page

  $wp = $webpartmanager.WebParts[0];

  $wp.ViewSelectorFetchAsync = $true;

  $wp.ViewSelectorFetchAsync = $true;

  "Setting View selector on page '{0}'" -f $pageUrl
