How to customize the cell value of the WinForms MonthCalendarAdv?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: MonthCalendarAdv

Customize the cell value

The appearance and accessibility of the cell value can be customized by handling the event named, DateCellQueryInfo in the MonthCalendarAdv. The following code example demonstrates the same.


//Handles this event to provide custom formatting for calendar cells.
this.monthCalendarAdv1.DateCellQueryInfo += new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DateCellQueryInfoEventHandler(monthCalendarAdv1_DateCellQueryInfo);
void monthCalendarAdv1_DateCellQueryInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DateCellQueryInfoEventArgs e)
    if (this.monthCalendarAdv1.Value.Date == DateTime.Today)
        //Disables the highlight color of the selected date value.
        e.EnableHighlightColor = false;
    if (e.RowIndex == 3 || e.RowIndex == 4)
        //Customizes the particular cell value.
        e.Style.BackColor = Color.Red;
        e.Style.TextColor = Color.White;


'Handles this event to provide custom formatting for calendar cells.
AddHandler monthCalendarAdv1.DateCellQueryInfo, AddressOf monthCalendarAdv1_DateCellQueryInfo
Private Sub monthCalendarAdv1_DateCellQueryInfo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DateCellQueryInfoEventArgs)
    If Me.monthCalendarAdv1.Value.Date = DateTime.Today Then
        'Disables the highlight color of the selected date value.
        e.EnableHighlightColor = False
    End If
    If e.RowIndex = 3 OrElse e.RowIndex = 4 Then
        'Customizes the particular cell value.
         e.Style.BackColor = Color.Red
         e.Style.TextColor = Color.White
    End If
End Sub
