Selection shape and custom cell


I want the SelectionShape to be a circle with a custom dataTemplate on my calendar, but the following code doesn't work (this is the part of the MonthViewSettings).

     <Syncfusion:MonthViewSettings SelectionShape="Circle">
                    <Grid HorizontalOptions="Center" BackgroundColor="{Binding BgColor}">
                         <Label Text="{Binding Date.Day}" TextColor="{Binding LblColor}" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center" VerticalTextAlignment="Center"/>

SelectionShape works fine without custom cells. Is there a way I can change my code so I can use this anyway?

Hi Jens, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We have checked your requirement “Month cell selection shape not applying for custom view” and which is the expected behavior. Selection shape can be customizable, which will work only in the default month cell view. When setting custom view, default view will be replaced with the custom view, so the default month view settings selection won’t apply. For custom view selection, you must need to handle by your own, which is the expected one. 

Please let us know, if you have any concern.

Would be so kind to share a sample for this.

Dear Muniappan ,

Thank you very much for your prompt answer. I checked it and it is really a nice solution.
But what I need was something simplier and different.
I attached the view ı want to get as a result. 
I managed not showing day (1,2,3 ..) information but a simple gray circle instead.But I couldn't manage to get cricle for daysselected as in the attached image.
Thank you very mch in advance.

Hi Burak, 
Thank you for the update. 
We have checked the reported query “Selection multiple dates inside the cell template” from our end. As per calendar implementation if we use custom cell template we cannot achieve multiple selection so we regrets to inform that as of there is no support to achieve multiple selection inside the cell template. 
Please let us know if you have any concern.
