I'm trying to customize a little bit the appearance of the appointments in the schedule, in the Day or Week view.
In particular, I'd like to make more visible the separation of two activities that have start/end dates that overlaps.
I've tried some ways, but I've found the following problems:
1. BorderColor and BorderWidth not working as expected
In the didAppointmentLoaded method of the SFScheduleDelegate I've added this instructions:
appointmentLoaded.AppointmentStyle.BorderColor = UIColor.Brown;
appointmentLoaded.AppointmentStyle.BorderWidth = 10;
appointmentLoaded.AppointmentStyle.SelectionBorderColor = UIColor.Blue;
but only the selected appointment was affected, showing the correct border. The other ones have the default border, not visible enough.
2. ScheduleDayAppointment not called
In the documentation, I've seen that I could override the method ScheduleDayAppointment of the SFScheduleDelegate, e.g. to show an image on the appointment.
Actually, this method is never called in my code.
And also, I've seen in your sample code, that you obtain this customization using the method didAppointmentLoaded.
The method ScheduleDayAppointment is actually called and can be used in some situations?
3. Not able to add a "left border"
Another way that I tried, is to add a "left border", like in Outlook. You can see the effect in this picture.
I've tried to obtain this effect in several ways, e.g. by adding a UIView with a particular background color in the didAppointmentLoaded method.
But all my attempts failed, in particular because I don't know how much is the height of the appointment (I can see my colored view on the left, but it isn't of the right height).
Is there a way to obtain an effect like this?
