Hi Akin,

Thank you for the provided image.

RadCalendar does not provide a template for the Title, however, you could achieve the required look by positioning a button above the control. I have created a sample example to show how you could implement it, please download the attached project and give it a try.

Let me know if I can help with anything else regarding this.

Hi Didi,

Thanks for the guidance, I did go a different route however. Which I'll post below in case someone else comes across this.

I ended up creating a custom renderer for the RadCalendar that implements only the following for now.

protected override void OnElementChanged(ElementChangedEventArgs<RadCalendar> e)
        {
            base.OnElementChanged(e);
 
            if (Control != null)
            {
                Control.ShowTitle = false;
            }
        }

 

and in my XAML, I do the following 

<views:CustomCalendarView Grid.Row="1"
    DisplayDate="{Binding CurrentDate, Mode=OneWayToSource}"/>

 

I have a question on this approach too, is OnElementChanged the correct method to be overriding? I couldnt find an OnLoad or OnInitialise method?

Hi Akin,

Thank you for the provided code.

OnElementChanged is the correct method for overriding. As you are creating a custom renderer you need to create a custom class and override the OnElementChanged method. You can take a look in our documentation how the custom renderer for RadCalendar control should be implemented for Android, iOS and UWP

Let me know if you have any other questions.
