    Hi,
    I am looking for a Silverlight control that I can use to somewhat emulate a monthly event calendar like as seen in Outlook. This would include stretching the calendar across an entire page and placing other controls (TextBlock, Button) inside of each date cell. Is it possible to achieve this using your Calendar control?

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Hello Sean,

    The purpose of the calendar is primarily for selecting dates and it allows some customization. Although such a scenario is possible, it will involve some advanced customization and the solution would not feel very "native" to the control.

    Here is sample outline:

    You can try adding a custom DataTemplate through the DayTemplate or DayTemplateSelectors properties of the calendar. This data template will be bound to a CalendarButtonContent class. In the template, you can bind the DataContext of (lets say) an ItemsConrol using a Converter that will return a list of appointments, based on the given date.

    I can provide more details if you decide to go this way.

    All the best,
    Miroslav
