I am trying to learn here,hope this is not a silly question.I have a Benq pd3220u monitor on its way as well as a x-rite i1 display pro.The monitor itself can quickly switch color spaces (adobe RGB, SRGB etc).If I calibrate the monitor on adobe RGB will that same ICC profile work with SRGB or would I have to recalibrate the monitor to accurately match SRGB?I guess an easier way to put it......Can different color spaces share the same ICC profile?Thanks in advance.

An ICC profile file can only contain one matrix for color and one curve for tone, so it can only characterize one color space.  If you're switching colorspaces on your monitor it's likely to see the differences, so you'll want the proper profile for your software to translate the image to the display's selected colorspace.
