    Add the buttons in Day Template of RadCalendar to show it for all dates.

    Here is the forum link which discussed similar scenario:

    Hi Shinu,

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    I had gone through your examples ,But while implementing I found that its changing the default date display in calender.
    What i need I want the date also should be shown ,with that two buttons also need to add in calender.

    Hello A2H,

    Please check out the following online documentation article.
    Additionally please note that handling the server side events of the dynamically added controls into the calendar cell is not a supported scenario. The controls could be added when the PreRender is fired, however attaching events on prerender  event is too late. However you could attach a client side function:
    void RadCalendar1_DayRender(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.Calendar.DayRenderEventArgs e)
            DateTime date = e.Day.Date;
            Label label = new Label();
            label.Text = e.Day.Date.Day.ToString();
            Button button1 = new Button();
            button1.Text = "b1";
            button1.OnClientClick = string.Format("buttonClickHandler('{0}');", date);
            Button button2 = new Button();
            button2.Text = "b2";
            button2.OnClientClick = string.Format("buttonClickHandler('{0}');", date);

    On this javascript function you could perform ajaxRequest and handle it on RadAjaxManager.AjaxRequest event:
    <telerik:RadCodeBlock runat="server">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function buttonClickHandler(date)
                var ajaxManager = $find("<%=RadAjaxManager1.ClientID %>");

    void RadAjaxManager1_AjaxRequest(object sender, AjaxRequestEventArgs e)
          var date = DateTime.Parse(e.Argument);

    Additionally I am sending you a simple example. Please check it out and let me know if it helps you.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
