Highlight dates in the MultiViewCalendar


Product MultiViewCalendar for Progress® Telerik® UI for ASP.NET MVC


How can I highlight some of the dates in the MultiViewCalendar?


You can use the following approach: 1. Pass a template to the MonthTemplateId option of the MultiViewCalendar. 2. The dates that will be highlighted are specified in the Dates configuration option of the MultiViewCalendar. This way they will be accessible in the template through data.dates. 3. The template is evaluated for each day, so this allows checking whether the day matches any of the dates in the Dates configuration. If a match is found, the day is wrapped in a div with class custom-day. 4. Add custom CSS to customize the appearance of the days that have the custom-day class.

<script id="monthTemplate" type="text/x-kendo-template">
    # var match = false;#

    # for (var i = 0; i < dates.length; i++) { #
        #if( == dates[i].getTime()){#
            # match = true; #
            # break; #
    # } #

    <div class="#=match == true ? 'custom-day' : ''#">#=data.value #</div>

    .Min(new DateTime(2021, 1, 1))
    .Max(new DateTime(2021, 12, 31))
    .Dates(new List<DateTime>()
        new DateTime(2021, 2, 10),
        new DateTime(2021, 2, 17),
        new DateTime(2021, 2, 24),
        new DateTime(2021, 3, 3),
        new DateTime(2021, 3, 10),
        new DateTime(2021, 3, 17),
        new DateTime(2021, 3, 24),
        new DateTime(2021, 3, 31)
        //...additional dates...

    .custom-day {
        background-color: sandybrown;
        width: 38.84px;
        height: 38.84px;
        border-radius: 4px;
        margin-top: -8px;
        margin-left: -8px;
        text-align: inherit;
        vertical-align: middle;
        padding-top: 8px;

    .k-calendar-range .k-month td.k-state-selected .custom-day {
        background-color: transparent;
