im testig yout schedule control v6.2

is there a way to set the border or the background color of each appointment programmaticly?
I derived the ScheduleGrid and try to do something with OnCellDrawn.
But what I need is the callback that paints the appointments itselfs not the cell. (i.e OnItemDraw?)

I have to sign out the appointments that are multiday in month view with a bullet or a special border.
Thats why your control is not able to span multiday appointments as one row in month view

thanks a lot

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

You can apply color to the appointments by using the LabelValue property. Please see the code:

appointment.LabelValue = 2;

This can also set in appointment form too by using the Label dropdown.

From version onwards we have added ShowMultiDayAppointmentsAsSpans property to display multiday appointments across days in Month, Day, Work Week, and Custom Day views. Please see the code:

this.scheduleControl.Appearance.MonthShowFullWeek = true;
this.scheduleControl.ShowMultiDayAppointmentsAsSpans = true;
ScheduleGrid.SpanOnlyPrimeTime = false; //requires adding references to grid.windows, grid.base, shared.windows and shared.base...

Could you please make use of our latest versions whcich has lot of advanced features and lot of issues fixed?. You can download the same from the below location:


Please let me know if you have any questions.

thank you for your answers.
I want to use your schedule control with a mysql db. And far away from your xml-logic because my data model will be used in another schedule application.
thats the reason why a few important questions are left:

how can i select a cell programmaticly by a given uniqueID. is there a method to find cells?

I could not find a method like performClickCell(row, col) i.e.

and how can i iterate through the appointment list in a cell?

is there a simple way to show one appointment in two lines in month view - without a margin of 2px between the rows

how can i reduce the left/right padding of the appointment item to give the text more space?

thanks in advanced
