I have a Xamarin Forms project where I am using calendar.

But I am having problems figuring out how to change the text color of the appointments on Android.

How do I do that?

Hello Anders,

You can set the AppointmentsStyle property of the RadCalendar to a custom CalendarAppointmentsStyle:

private void cal_NativeControlLoaded(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    cal.AppointmentsStyle = new CalendarAppointmentsStyle
    {
        DisplayMode = AppointmentDisplayMode.Text,
        TextColor = Color.DarkOrange,
        Padding = new Thickness(5, 5, 5, 5),
    };
}

Note that I am setting it in the NativeControlLoaded event of the RadCalendar. This is due to a bug that we have recently logged in our internal system - Calendar[Android]: Setting the AppointmentsStyle before the control is loaded is not respected. I have increased its priority as per your report. Please have a look at the sample I have attached and consider such approach as well.

Have a great rest of the week.

I am trying to change the event text color in day view. AndI can't get this working with your provided code.

The all-day events will get the new text color, but the timed events does not change.

Hi Anders,

Please have a look at the DayViewCustomViewsFragment from the Android Samples Application(located in the Examples/Android folder of your local installation). As shown there, you need to create a custom EventDayViewAdapter as well as a custom DayEventView where you can override the color.
