Telerik Calendar supports all common features you would find in the standard Month Calendar control, such as first day of week, show today, special days, and show/hide week numbers, but adds several nifty features you will not find in the Visual Studio toolbox, such as focused date, show/hide week days, fish eye (date zoom functionality), read-only support, and show other month days. We went even further and extended the calendar functionality with footer support, controllable header/footer, fast navigation buttons, and full control over cell formatting (paddings, borders, margins, spacings, alignment, etc), making RadCalendar a feature-complete control with expected behavior, which your users will truly appreciate.
Telerik Calendar can be easily configured to show more than one month in the calendar area - a very handy feature when a range of dates has to be selected. This functionality is controlled with a couple of simple properties and gives you extra control over the UI.
Developers have complete control over the appearance of the day matrix, as it is not hardcoded to the usual 7x6 mode. By setting the FirstDayOfWeek and the days x rows matrix you can format the number of rows/columns in a MonthView. There is a maximum of 42 cells per MonthView.
Telerik Calendar provides three types of navigation, which allows you to switch and jump to new views (months):
When Fish Eye is enabled, pressing and holding a date with the mouse will zoom-in the date for extra interactivity. There are two properties which control that behavior: AllowFishEye, which enables/disables the fish eye, and ZoomFactor which determines the zooming proportion.
By default the Telerik Windows Forms Calendar renders the days horizontally row by row. However it can be configured to render the content vertically (i.e. column by column). Simply specify the orientation of the calendar by setting the Orientation property to either Horizontal or Vertical.
RadCalendar offers slick animated navigation between views similar to the one in the Windows calendar. Thanks to that feature, you can easily switch to a date years ahead or behind of the date currently in view.
RadDateTimePicker is a lightweight yet highly advanced date input control for Windows Forms. It integrates seamlessly with the Telerik Calendar control, to create a comprehensive date input interface. Users are able either to enter the date in the date picker or select it from the popup calendar. In both cases the values of the two controls will be synchronized to allow further change of the chosen date.
For end-user's convenience, Telerik Windows Forms Calendar supports several intuitive selection options:
A collection of dynamic templates can be used for achieving rich presentation of the calendar days. You can use this customization on a "per day" basis. It is especially useful if you want to implement a scheduler-like interface with additional information and images about events, links to various resources, etc. Other UI for WinForms are also supported in the template.
The globalization namespace consists of classes, which contain culture-related information, such as language, country/region, calendars in use, format patterns for dates, currency, and numbers, and sort order for strings. They are useful classes for writing globalized (internationalized) applications. Telerik Calendar uses a Culture property for globalization/localization purposes.
The Windows Forms Calendar control by Telerik supports Read-only mode where dates cannot be selected and months cannot be changed. This mode is controlled through the ReadOnly property.
The control is shipped with a rich set of themes that allow you to easily build slick interfaces with the look-and-feel of Windows Vista, Office 2007, Outlook, etc. The themes can be easily switched using a single property.
In addition to the built-in themes, all UI for WinForms come with a feature we call Theme Color Blending, which allows for tweaking the color scheme of a theme, without the need to redo the theme from scratch. The updated color scheme is applied to all Telerik WinForms controls that you are using in your application for a fresh new look. Or you can build a new theme from scratch to fit your exact visual demands by using the Visual Style Builder productivity tool.
Telerik Windows Forms Calendar supports the standard navigation paradigm. Users can tab across the form elements till they reach the calendar element. Then they can go over the individual days by using the arrow keys. A day can be selected by clicking the [Enter] or [Space] buttons. [PageUp] and [PageDown] move up/down between months, whereas [Home] and [End] navigate to the first/last day of the displayed month.
Telerik Calendar provides rich design-time support functionality making customizations and configurations very easy. Some of the key capabilities are:
Telerik Calendar provides full support for Right-to-Left languages. See Localization and Right-to-Left Support for the full list of Telerik Windows Forms controls supporting RTL languages and localization.
