Hi Faleh,

Thank you for your patience.

Issue 1: I need to build my custom skin how looks like in the attachment file.

Yes. you can customize the calendar control styles by writing the own skin. Below code snippet is used to achieve this behavior :

$ssw:DropDownCalendarControl ID="DropDownCalendarControl2" runat="server" Format="Short" Width="237px" SkinID="DCCskin2">

$ssw:DropDownCalendarControl runat="server" SkinID="DCCskin2">
$CalendarStyle BackColor="#C000C0" />
$WeekendDayStyle BackColor="#C0C0FF" />
$DayStyle BackColor="#FFC0FF" />
$TitleStyle BackColor="#00C0C0" />
$DayHeaderStyle BackColor="#C000C0" />
$OtherDayStyle BackColor="#FFE0C0" />
$SelectedDayStyle BackColor="Olive" />

Issue 2 : I wish to apply the Format "Image Blue" and I wish to apply my custom style to the calendar.

You can apply the AutoFormat "Image Blue" for DropDownCalendarControl and also apply the custom style to that calendar. But our current code library support only to override the CalendarStyle. The other style is unable to customize. The issue mentioned here is suspected to be a defect and we have sent this to our development team for more analysis. We will update you once we get back from our development team.

$ssw:DropDownCalendarControl ID="DropDownCalendarControl1" runat="server" CustomFormat="dd/mm/yyyy "
Format="CustomString" Width="237px" AutoFormat="Image Blue">

$CalendarStyle BackColor="yellow" />
$WeekendDayStyle BackColor="red" />
$DayStyle BackColor="#FFC0C0" />
$TitleStyle BackColor="#C0C0FF" />
$DayHeaderStyle BackColor="#EE7A03" />
$OtherDayStyle BackColor="#E0E0E0" />
$SelectedDayStyle BackColor="Red" />

Note : Please note that we are used '$' instead of '<'

Please refer the sample in the below link which illustrates the above:


Please try running the above sample and let me know if this helps.
