Is it possible to have the Android version of the calendar draw the number of the date in the centre of the day cell, as it is on iOS, instead of in the top right?

Hello Ian,

You can style most of the element properties within XamarinForms (see Styling).

However, to change layout, you'll need to use a custom renderer and access the native Android CalendarView.

The Android Custom Renderer and Android CalendarView Customizations article (see "SetTextPosition" method, this would be TextPosition in C#) will help you set that up.

If you have any trouble implementing it, reply back with your custom renderer class and I'll investigate directly.

Hi Lance,

I got this working...

protected override void OnElementChanged(ElementChangedEventArgs<RadCalendar> e)
{
    base.OnElementChanged(e);
 
    var filter = new CalendarDayCellFilter
    {
        CellType = Com.Telerik.Widget.Calendar.CalendarCellType.Date
    };
 
    var style = new CalendarDayCellStyle
    {
        Filter = filter
        TextPosition = new Java.Lang.Integer(4 | 8)
    };
 
    Control.AddDayCellStyle(style);
}

 

But how does one access CalendarElement.AlignRight given that it's not a static? At present, I'm using raw integers.

Hello Ian,

You should be able to use explicit conversion, try the following:

using Com.Telerik.Widget.Calendar;
...
 
var style = new CalendarDayCellStyle
{
    Filter = filter,
    TextPosition = (Java.Lang.Integer)(CalendarElement.CenterHorizontal | CalendarElement.CenterVertical)
};
