    I have an application that manages events.  The users would like to see the dates for existing events   highlighted in the datepicker calendar.
    In the datepicker in the asp controls, this is easy using the special days collection.   I can also add tool tips to special days programmatically.

    I cannot find any way to achieve this functionality with the silverlight datepicker.  Does anyone know if this is possible?  and if possible, how?

    Hi Alex VonBrand,

    You can create a DayTemplateSelector and apply it to the Calendar of RadDatePicker using the CalendarStyle property:

               <Style TargetType="telerik:RadCalendar">
                  <Setter Property="DayTemplateSelector" Value="{StaticResource MyEventTemplateSelector}" />
               </Style>                                                   </telerik:RadDatePicker.CalendarStyle>

    In this template selector you can provide two or more DataTemplates for days which are special.

    You can see this approach in action in our online examples. Please, check Calendar FirstLook example and Calendar DatePicker example.
