Asked On February 2, 2007 04:07 PM UTC

Hi,

How do I populate the dates that are extracted from a database into a dropdownCalendar control. The dates will be extracted from the database based on the user selection made on another field on the page. What is the event that I can use? I see only the prerender event which is used before the calendar is loaded.

Any example would be great!!

Thanks!!

Hi Monica,

Attached is the sample as per your required.

http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/DropDownCalendar_aa229204cc.zip

Here the page contains a DropDownList control which fires the 'SelectedIndexChanged' event to select record in the Grid.Grouping control and set the DropDownCalendarControl's Value to the date value of the selected record. The DropDownCalendar Control gets populated depending upon the value selected in the DropDownList.

So the 'SelectedIndexChanged' event of the DropDownList control helps you to achieve your requirement.

Please let us know if you have any other concerns.

Regards,
Valli.

Hi Valli,

Is it possible to provide an example for updating multiple dates background in the dropdownCalendarControl? In .NET, you can use the dayRender event to update it. I don't see this event available in Syncfusion. How do you access a particular cell in the date field to change the background?

Also, I am not able to access the example you provided above.

Thanks!

Hi Monica,

The DropDownCalendar control provides a powerful date/time entry that allows to select date from the drop down calendar and also provides an option for editing. It supports events like 'TextChanged',' ValueChanged' which are invoked when the text and values are changed respectively. This control does not provide support to the event 'DayRender', which is fired as each day is renderd.

Please let us know if you have any further queries.

Regards,
Valli.

Valli,

Here is what I am looking for:

1. Can I highlight multiple days (2nd Feb, 8th Feb, 25th feb) background in the same month and/or across months (25th Feb, 2nd Jan, 13th Jan? if yes, how?

2. What event is fired when the month buttons (last month or next month) is clicked?

3. Can I bind the dropdownCalendar control to a ObjectDataSource (connected to a database) like a grid, and based on the dates in the ObjectDatasource, the days are highlighted? If yes, Example will be great!!

Thanks!!

Hi Monica,

1. DropDownCalendar control provides style setting for the following days as SelectedDayStyle, TodayDayStyle, WeekendDayStyle, OtherDayStyle. I am afraid that it is not possible to highlight multiple days.

2. Events cannot be triggered when the month value is changed. I will analyze this feature and update you with more information on Monday.

3. Databinding with the DropDownCalendar Control will be supported in our upcoming release which scheduled around March 15.

Please let us know if you have any further queries.

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Regards,
Valli

Hi Monica,

1. DropDownCalendar control supports single date selection, so the selected date style can be changed using the 'SelectedDayStyle' property. There is no option to highlight multiple days at the same time or across months.

2. I have filed a feature request to fire a server side event when the month and the year value gets changed. When the month or the year value in the DropDown Calendar control gets changed, a postback will be triggered and gets the server side function to be executed. Hope this feature will satisfy your requirement.

Please let us know if you have any further queries.

Regards,
Valli

Valli,

Is it possible to highlight the background of the calendar days, and it stays highlighted even when you select a different day?
Can we have this feature added?

Thanks,

Hi Monica,

I am afraid that DropDownCalendar control does not support multiple date selection.

I have filed a feature request to select multiple days and an option to apply styles to those selected days. Multiple selection of days can be within same month or across different months. I hope this feature will satisfy your requirement.

Please let us know if you have any further queries.

Hi,

Do we have the feature to highlight multiple days at the same time or across months in a calendar control in the 6.1 version?

I see that you have dayrender event and visibleMontChanged event. Is it possible to select multiple days across months in the latest version?

Thanks!
