Styling: Inline events

When working with Inline events, specifying a color for the event's cell indicator (i.e. the color is used for the shape that visualizes the event in the corresponding day cell) is done by using the eventColor property of CalendarEvent class. If CalendarEventsViewMode.Inline is chosen for events view mode, you can apply additional styling options to the cells of the table view shown for inline events.

Since events are available for Month and Week views you should initialize the inlineEventCellStyle member of CalendarMonthViewStyle or CalendarWeekViewStyle with instance of InlineEventCellStyle class.

InlineEventCellStyle class has the following properties:

  • cellBackgroundColor - defines the background color of inline events cell.
  • eventTextColor - defines the color for inline event text.
  • eventFontName - defines the font name for inline event text.
  • eventFontStyle - defines the font style for inline event text.
  • eventTextSize - defines the text size for inline event text.
  • timeTextColor - defines the color for time shown for inline event.
  • timeFontName - defines the font name for time shown for inline event.
  • timeFontStyle - Gets or sets the font style for time shown for inline event.
  • timeTextSize - defines the text size for time shown for inline event.

Example

Here's an example of using the styling properties mentioned above:

<rc:CalendarMonthviewStyle.inlineEventCellStyle>
    <rc:InlineEventCellStyle cellBackgroundColor="LightPink" eventTextColor="Gold" eventFontName="Avenir" eventFontStyle="BoldItalic" eventTextSize="12" 
                            timeTextColor="DeepSkyBlue" timeFontName="Courier" timeFontStyle="Regular" timeTextSize="14"/>
</rc:CalendarMonthviewStyle.inlineEventCellStyle>

and the visual result:

Calendar year view styling Calendar year view styling
