Initializing the MultiViewCalendar

  1. Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core.
  2. Create a new action method which renders the view.

        public ActionResult Index()
            return View();
  3. Add a MultiViewCalendar.

                .Name("MultiViewCalendar") // The name of the MultiViewCalendar is mandatory. It specifies the "id" attribute of the widget.
                .Min(new DateTime(2010, 1, 1, 10, 0, 0)) // Set the min time of the MultiViewCalendar.
                .Max(new DateTime(2010, 1, 1, 20, 0, 0)) // Set the min date of the MultiViewCalendar.
                .Value(DateTime.Now) // Set the value of the MultiViewCalendar.
              <kendo-multiviewcalendar name="multiviewcalendar"
                                       min="new DateTime(2010, 1, 1, 10, 0, 0)"
                                       max="new DateTime(2010, 1, 1, 20, 0, 0)"
