7.0.0 Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Scheduler Dobrinka Yordanova


When using the Telerik UI RadScheduler in a .NET MAUI application, I want to style the weekend days differently from the weekdays in the MonthView. Initially, I wanted to use the SpecialSlotStyleSelector for the MonthViewDefinition from Telerik Xamarin Scheduler, but it's not available in the Telerik UI for .NET MAUI Scheduler. How can I style my weekend days differently in the month view?

To style days differently in the MonthView of RadScheduler for .NET MAUI, instead of using SpecialSlotStyleSelector, you should utilize the DayStyleSelector. This allows for custom styling of days, including differentiating weekends from weekdays.

First, ensure the Scheduler is set to use the MonthView:

<telerik:RadScheduler x:Name="scheduler" ActiveViewDefinitionIndex="1">
        <telerik:MonthViewDefinition DayStyleSelector="{StaticResource CustomDayStyleSelector}" />

Next, to specifically style the weekends, you can define a WeekendLabelStyle within your CustomDayStyleSelector. Here's how you can set the background color for weekend days:

    <Style TargetType="Label">
        <Setter Property="TextColor" Value="#707070" />
        <Setter Property="HorizontalTextAlignment" Value="Center" />
        <Setter Property="VerticalTextAlignment" Value="Center" />

This approach allows for a high degree of customization for day styling within the MonthView of RadScheduler.

For more details and examples on how to further customize the Scheduler, refer to the RadScheduler Day Styling and explore the Scheduler examples in the SDK Browser application and Controls Samples application.
