Show icon instead of days

is it possible to replace the day-number (1, 2, 3, ..) with an icon? I have a use case where users have done something on certain days of the month and I want to highlight those days.
Thank you a lot in advance,

Hi Tac,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

Currently control custom View cannot be provided in SfCalendar and we can differentiate the dates by customizing the background color of the cells using the OnMonthLoaded event. We have considered your request "Customise the date cell in Calendar control" as feature. We have already logged feature report regarding this and it will be available in our upcoming Volume 3 release. You can check our website periodically to know about our release.

Hi Tac
I would also be interested in that feature. It however still doesn't seem to be available in the most recent version?
Xuni already offers this feature: http://www.goxuni.com/docs/xamarin/userguide/CustomDayContent.html
