Description

How can I use the event template to render events with a specific background color in the Scheduler?

Solution

The following example demonstrates how to achieve the desired scenario.

<style>
    .k-scheduler-header-wrap div.k-event,
    .k-scheduler-content div.k-event {
        background-color: red;
    }

    .movie-template
    {
        background-color: yellow;
        height: 100%;
    }

    .movie-template p
    {
        margin: 0;
    }
</style>
<div id="example">
  <div id="scheduler"></div>
</div>

<script id="event-template" type="text/x-kendo-template">
    <div class="movie-template">
      <p>
          #: kendo.toString(start, "hh:mm") # - #: kendo.toString(end, "hh:mm") #
      </p>
      <h3>#: title #</h3>
      <p>#: description #</p>
      </div>
</script>
<script>
      $(function() {
        $("#scheduler").kendoScheduler({
          date: new Date("2013/6/13"),
          startTime: new Date("2013/6/13 07:00 AM"),
          height: 600,
          views: [
