Asked On September 10, 2017 03:33 PM UTC

Hello! I'm really enjoying the product, but I have a question: How do I set a custom color for Schedule Appointment items ?, I already use the values of item.LabelValue = 2; but I want to customize with any color system color, for example: item.LabelValue = Color.Tomato. I already tried the item.BackColor = Color.Tomato, but without any result. 

Thaks in advance!

Hi Ary, 

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.  
We could able to understand your scenario and created the simple sample based your requirement. In order to change the label colors, use the custom ScheduleDataProvider and override the InitLists method. In that method, you can change the LabelValue colors to change the appointment backColor. Please make use of the below code,  
Code snippet:  
public class SimpleScheduleDataProvider : ScheduleDataProvider  
    /// <summary>  
    /// Default constructor.  
    /// </summary>  
    public SimpleScheduleDataProvider()  
        : base()  
    public override void InitLists()  
        ///Suggestion 1  
        this.LabelList[0].ColorMember = Color.Black;  
        this.LabelList[1].ColorMember = Color.Red;  
        this.LabelList[2].ColorMember = Color.Purple;  
        this.LabelList[3].ColorMember = Color.Yellow;  
        this.LabelList[4].ColorMember = Color.Pink;  
        this.LabelList[5].ColorMember = Color.YellowGreen;  
        this.LabelList[6].ColorMember = Color.Violet;  
        this.LabelList[7].ColorMember = Color.Tomato;  
        this.LabelList[8].ColorMember = Color.SpringGreen;  
        this.LabelList[9].ColorMember = Color.SandyBrown;  
        this.LabelList[10].ColorMember = Color.RosyBrown;  
        ///Suggestion 2  
        //this.LabelList = new ListObjectList();  
        //this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(0, "None", Color.White));  
        //this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(1, "Important", Color.Red));  
        //this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(2, "Business", Color.Purple));  
        //this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(3, "Personal", Color.Yellow));  
        //this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(4, "Vacation", Color.Pink));  
        //this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(5, "Must Attend", Color.YellowGreen));  
        //this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(6, "Travel Required", Color.Violet));  
        //this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(7, "Needs Preparation", Color.Tomato));  
        //this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(8, "Birthday", Color.SpringGreen));  
        //this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(9, "Anniversary", Color.SandyBrown));  
        //this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(10, "Phone Call", Color.RosyBrown));

Please let us know if you have any other queries,  
We do not have the direct support to change the backcolor for appointments like “item.LabelValue = Color.Red”.

Hi Ary,  
Thanks for your update. 
Yes, it is possible. In order to add more number of colors for appointments, you can use our second suggestion as we provided the code example in our previous update and attached sample. Please refer to the below code example, 
Code example 
this.LabelList = new ListObjectList(); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(0, "None", Color.White)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(1, "Important", Color.Red)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(2, "Business", Color.Purple)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(3, "Personal", Color.Yellow)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(4, "Vacation", Color.Pink)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(5, "Must Attend", Color.YellowGreen)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(6, "Travel Required", Color.Violet)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(7, "Needs Preparation", Color.Tomato)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(8, "Birthday", Color.SpringGreen)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(9, "Anniversary", Color.SandyBrown)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(10, "Wedding function", Color.RosyBrown)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(11, "Birthday Party", Color.DarkSalmon)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(12, "Meeting", Color.DarkOliveGreen)); 
this.LabelList.Add(new ListObject(13, "Playing", Color.DarkSlateBlue)); 
Please let us know if you have any concerns.
