    I have events that I would like to have line-wrap and the control currently uses an ellipses to indicate more text.   I haven't found a way to turn that off or cause it to line wrap.   Any suggestions on how to accomplish that?

    Hello Brian,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Currently TKCalendar does not support this functionality out of the box. To achieve the desired scenario you should subclass TKCalendarDayCell  and implement a method called drawEvents:rect: where you can manually draw the events. Please consider the code snippet below: 
    @implementation MyCell
    - (void)drawEvents:(CGContextRef)context rect:(CGRect)rect
        for (TKCalendarEvent *event in {
            // drawing code

    This sounds like a reasonable suggestion and we will consider implementing such functionality in one of our future releases. I logged it in our feedback portal where you can vote/comment. I also updated your Telerik points for this suggestion.

    I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, I will be glad to assist you.
