How to show holidays in a different color in calendar web server control?

P: n/a
By default, days in the calendar control are simply displayed as numbers, I
want to show some days in a different color in this control. What is the
best way to do that?

Thanks very much.

Hi

Do subscribe the DayRender event of the calender control...
and change your style
here is a simple code snippet

protected void Calendar1_DayRender(object sender, DayRenderEventArgs
e)
{
if (e.Day.IsWeekend)
{
e.Cell.BackColor = Color.Red;
}
}

Best of luck

Hi Simon,

As for Calendar control, I think the best place to perform the
customization is using "DayRender" event. In this event, you can get the
current Cell being rendered. And you can check the DateTime and then do
some customization on the cell. For example:

========================
Protected Sub Calendar1_DayRender(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.Web.UI.WebControls.DayRenderEventArgs) Handles Calendar1.DayRender

If e.Day.Date.Day Mod 5 = 1 Then

e.Cell.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Yellow

End If

End Sub
========================

For your case, what you need to do is write a function to check whether it
is holiday based on the DateTime value. Then, chang the background or
foreground color.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Steven Cheng
