Hello Hassan,

A new button can be added as per this exmaple

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    Me.RadCalendar1.ShowFooter = True
    Me.RadCalendar1.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.TodayButton.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Visible
    Me.RadCalendar1.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.ClearButton.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Visible
    Dim button As New RadButtonElement("Hi")
    button.MaxSize = New Size(50, 18)
      
    AddHandler button.Click, AddressOf Button_Click
    Me.RadCalendar1.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.Children(0).Children.Add(button)
End Sub
Private Sub Button_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    MessageBox.Show("Hi Hassan")
End Sub

Hope that helps
Richard

Okay, want to add more buttons now...

This code
private void SetupSpecialCalendarButtons() {
  CalendarDiary.ShowFooter = true;
  CalendarDiary.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.TodayButton.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Visible;
  CalendarDiary.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.ClearButton.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Visible;
 
  RadButtonElement ButtonSpecialCalendar = new RadButtonElement("Available") {
    MaxSize = new Size(150, 18),
    ToolTipText = "Mark Available",
    TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText,
    Image = MenuItemAvailable.Image
  };
  ButtonSpecialCalendar.Click += ButtonSpecialCalendar_MarkAvailable_Click;
  CalendarDiary.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.Children[0].Children.Add(ButtonSpecialCalendar);
 
  ButtonSpecialCalendar = new RadButtonElement("Unavailable") {
    MaxSize = new Size(150, 18),
    ToolTipText = "Mark Unavailable",
    TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText,
    Image = MenuItemUnavailable.Image
  };
  ButtonSpecialCalendar.Click += ButtonSpecialCalendar_MarkUnAvailable_Click;
  CalendarDiary.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.Children[0].Children.Add(ButtonSpecialCalendar);
 
  ButtonSpecialCalendar = new RadButtonElement("Holiday") {
    MaxSize = new Size(150, 18),
    ToolTipText = "Mark Holiday",
    TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText,
    Image = MenuItemHoliday.Image
  };
  ButtonSpecialCalendar.Click += ButtonSpecialCalendar_MarkHoliday_Click;
  CalendarDiary.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.Children[0].Children.Add(ButtonSpecialCalendar);
}

Does this (see attached image)

HI Hassan,

I think that this will involve adding a RadPanelElement to the DockLayoutPanel in the CalendarStatusElement and then adding the buttons to the RadPanelElement. I'll see if I can work something out for you and and get back to you as soon as I can .

One quick way may be to collapse the label element that shows the current date time.
radCalendar1.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.Children[0].Children[2].Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
thus giving more room for your buttons

Hi Hassan,

I think the problem is that you could not dock your buttons to the right. Here is how one should dock element inside a DockLayoutPanel:
myElement.SetValue(Telerik.WinControls.Layouts.DockLayoutPanel.DockProperty,
                Telerik.WinControls.Layouts.Dock.Right);

I have modified your code to make the buttons dock in a proper way:
private void SetupSpecialCalendarButtons()
{
    CalendarDiary.ShowFooter = true;
    CalendarDiary.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.TodayButton.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Visible;
    CalendarDiary.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.ClearButton.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Visible;
 
    RadButtonElement ButtonSpecialCalendar = new RadButtonElement("Available")
    {
        MaxSize = new Size(150, 18),
        ToolTipText = "Mark Available",
        TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText,
        Alignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleRight
    };
    ButtonSpecialCalendar.SetValue(Telerik.WinControls.Layouts.DockLayoutPanel.DockProperty,
        Telerik.WinControls.Layouts.Dock.Right);
    CalendarDiary.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.Children[0].Children.Add(ButtonSpecialCalendar);
 
    ButtonSpecialCalendar = new RadButtonElement("Unavailable")
    {
        MaxSize = new Size(150, 18),
        ToolTipText = "Mark Unavailable",
        TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText,
        Alignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleRight
    };
    ButtonSpecialCalendar.SetValue(Telerik.WinControls.Layouts.DockLayoutPanel.DockProperty,
        Telerik.WinControls.Layouts.Dock.Right);
    CalendarDiary.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.Children[0].Children.Add(ButtonSpecialCalendar);
      
    ButtonSpecialCalendar = new RadButtonElement("Unavailable")
    {
        MaxSize = new Size(150, 18),
        ToolTipText = "Mark Unavailable",
        TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.ImageBeforeText,
        Alignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleRight
    };
    ButtonSpecialCalendar.SetValue(Telerik.WinControls.Layouts.DockLayoutPanel.DockProperty,
        Telerik.WinControls.Layouts.Dock.Right);
    CalendarDiary.CalendarElement.CalendarStatusElement.Children[0].Children.Add(ButtonSpecialCalendar);
      
}

You may also want to collapse the label element as Richard suggested in the previous post.

Let us know if this helped you. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ask.
