Description

How can I show more events in view cells in a Kendo UI for jQuery Scheduler?

Solution

As of the 2020 R1, you can use the views.eventsPerDay option, to set the number of events in the month view.

For versions of Kendo UI prior to 2020 R1, where the eventsPerDay property is not available, increasing the number of events in the month view cells must be achieved by using CSS.

The following example demonstrates how to show more events in the Scheduler by increasing the height of the cells.

    <style>
        /* increase the height of the cells in day, work week and week views */
        .k-scheduler-table td,
        .k-scheduler-table th {
            height: 5.5em;
        }

        /* The following styles will work only with Kendo UI versions before 2020 R1 */
        /* increase the height of the month view cells */
        .k-scheduler-monthview .k-scheduler-table td {
            height: 15.5em;
        }
    </style>
    <div id="scheduler"></div>
    <script>
        $("#scheduler").kendoScheduler({
            date: new Date("2013/6/13"),
            startTime: new Date("2013/6/13 07:00 AM"),
            height: 600,
            views: [
                "day",
                { type: "workWeek" },
                "week",
                // eventsPerDay is available with 2020 R1 and later version
                { type: "month", selected: true, eventsPerDay: 10 },
                "agenda"
            ],
            timezone: "Etc/UTC",
            dataSource: {
                batch: true,
                transport: {
                    read: {

                    },
                    update: {

                    },
                    create: {

                        dataType: "jsonp"
                    },
