How to style the month cell in the Flutter Calendar

Platform: Flutter |
Control: SfCalendar |
Published Date: November 17, 2020 |
Last Revised Date: May 5, 2021

In the Flutter Event Calendar, you can add active dates by using the reverse concept of the blackoutDates.

STEP 1: In initState(), set the default values for event calendar.

List<DateTime>? _blackoutDateCollection= <DateTime>[];
List<DateTime>? _activeDates;
void initState() {
  DateTime today = DateTime.now();
  today = DateTime(today.year, today.month, today.day);
  _activeDates = [
    today.add(Duration(days: 5)),
    today.add(Duration(days: 10)),
    today.add(Duration(days: 15)),
    today.add(Duration(days: 20)),
    today.add(Duration(days: 25)),
    today.add(Duration(days: 30)),
    today.add(Duration(days: 35))

STEP 2: Using onViewChanged callback, check the mentioned active dates are equal to the visible dates. If it is equal, then you can add the active dates and can be selected. Otherwise, add remaining dates in the blackout dates collection.

void viewChanged(ViewChangedDetails viewChangedDetails) {
  DateTime date;
  DateTime startDate = viewChangedDetails.visibleDates[0];
  DateTime endDate = viewChangedDetails
      .visibleDates[viewChangedDetails.visibleDates.length - 1];
  List<DateTime> _blackDates = <DateTime>[];
  for (date = startDate;
  date.isBefore(endDate) || date == endDate;
  date = date.add(const Duration(days: 1))) {
    if (_activeDates!.contains(date)) {
  SchedulerBinding.instance!.addPostFrameCallback((timeStamp) {
    setState(() {
      _blackoutDateCollection = _blackDates;

STEP 3: Assign the above date collections to the blackoutDates property of the Flutter event calendar.

child: SfCalendar(
  view: CalendarView.month,
  blackoutDates: _blackoutDateCollection,
  blackoutDatesTextStyle: TextStyle(
      color: Colors.grey, decoration: TextDecoration.lineThrough),
  onViewChanged: viewChanged,
