Adding Controls to a Calendar Cell

There are two possible approaches for adding controls to a RadCalendar cell:

  • You can add controls to a Day template and assign the template to one or more special days in the calendar. This approach is useful when you want to add controls on a "per day" basis. For details on how to create and use day templates, see Day Templates.

  • You can use the DayRender event to add the controls to every cell of the calendar just before it is rendered on the client:

protected void RadCalendar1_DayRender(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.Calendar.DayRenderEventArgs e) 
    Label label = new Label();
    label.Text = e.Day.Date.Day.ToString();
    label = new Label();
    label.Text = e.Day.Date.DayOfWeek.ToString();
Protected Sub RadCalendar1_DayRender(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Telerik.Web.UI.Calendar.DayRenderEventArgs) Handles RadCalendar1.DayRender
    Dim label As New Label()
    label.Text = e.Day.[Date].Day.ToString()
    label = New Label()
    label.Text = e.Day.[Date].DayOfWeek.ToString()
End Sub
