How to customize the label, marker and reminder colors of appointments in WinForms ScheduleControl?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: ScheduleControl |

Customize the label, marker and reminder color of appointments

By default, the color will be set to appointment based on IScheduleAppointment.LabelValue. In order to change the custom color for the appointment label, DrawCellDisplayText event can be used.

C#

//Event Subscription
this.scheduleControl1.GetScheduleHost().DrawCellDisplayText += Form1_DrawCellDisplayText;
 
//Event Customization
void Form1_DrawCellDisplayText(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridDrawCellDisplayTextEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Style.CellValue.ToString().Contains("subject"))
    {
        Color c = ((ListObject)scheduleProvider.GetLocations()[2]).ColorMember;
        Rectangle rect = e.TextRectangle;
        rect.Y += 16;
        rect.Height -= 16;
        e.Graphics.FillRectangle(new SolidBrush(c), rect.X, rect.Y + 10, rect.Width - 2, 20);
        e.Graphics.DrawString("Subject  Mon:Tue", e.Style.GdipFont, new SolidBrush(e.Style.TextColor), new Point(rect.X + 2, rect.Y + 12));
    }
}

VB

'Event Subscription
AddHandler Me.scheduleControl1.GetScheduleHost().DrawCellDisplayText, AddressOf Form1_DrawCellDisplayText
 
'Event Customization
Private Sub Form1_DrawCellDisplayText(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridDrawCellDisplayTextEventArgs)
    If e.Style.CellValue.ToString().Contains("subject") Then
        Dim c As Color = (CType(scheduleProvider.GetLocations()(2), ListObject)).ColorMember
        Dim rect As Rectangle = e.TextRectangle
        rect.Y += 16
        rect.Height -= 16
        e.Graphics.FillRectangle(New SolidBrush(c), rect.X, rect.Y + 10, rect.Width - 2, 20)
        e.Graphics.DrawString("Subject  Mon:Tue", e.Style.GdipFont, New SolidBrush(e.Style.TextColor), New Point(rect.X + 2, rect.Y + 12))
    End If
End Sub
