    I am working on a screen that uses the scheduler.  I only want to show the month view and place the different tasks on the calendar.  I have this working the main issue I am having is I would like to color the background based on our own internal status.  As of right now I have been able to use the AppointmentFormatting to change the colors and have it display the way I would like.  I also see that I could add AppointmentBackgroundInfo so for Status Id's that already exist are no issue.  Is there a way to override the existing status backcolor and gradientstyle?

    Hello, Frank,   

    The AppointmentBackgroundInfo controls the back color of the AppointmentElement. You can event create your own custom AppointmentBackgroundInfo. The following forum thread demonstrates how to create a custom AppointmentBackgroundInfo:

    An alternative approach is to use the AppointmentFormatting event. It gives you the opportunity to fully customize the AppointmentElement.

    Feel free to use this approach which suits your requirement best.

    As to the appointment's status, you can hide it by setting the RadScheduler.ShowAppointmentStatus property to false. Thus, only the background will be rendered. Alternatively, you can add your custom status. Here is demonstrated a sample code snippet: 
    AppointmentStatusInfo appointmentStatusInfo = new AppointmentStatusInfo((int)AppointmentStatus.Tentative,
        "Test", Color.Red,Color.Yellow, AppointmentStatusFillType.Hatch);
    a.StatusId = this.radScheduler1.Statuses.Last().Id;

    I hope this information helps. If you have any additional questions, please let me know.
