Is there a way to replicate the behaviour of the Outlook calendar, where you click on an individual day and the entire week is highlighted?

I have linked the Calendar to a Scheduler control, and it displays the correct week there, but I would like to highlight the entire week in the Calendar control, rather than the single day

Thanks

Hello Andy,

Thank you for writing.

You could use the SpecialDays property of the calendar to highlight some day/days. Please note that you should only add the desired dates to the SpecialDays collection.

I hope this will help you. If you have other questions, do not hesitate to write us.

All the best,

This did not work as I wanted, but I was able to solve my problem using the ElementRender event

Thanks

Broadly, I intercepted the event, and checked whether the selected date was in that week.
If so, change the background colour of the day element to be something other than the default.

It's been a year since I wrote it, so it's a bit vague without trying to find the source code again in our archives!

Hello hema,

Here is a code snippet that implements Andy's idea:
public Form1()
{
    InitializeComponent();
    this.radCalendar1.ElementRender += radCalendar1_ElementRender;
}
 
public int WeekNumber(System.DateTime value)
{
    return CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.Calendar.GetWeekOfYear(value, CalendarWeekRule.FirstFourDayWeek,
                                                             DayOfWeek.Monday);
}
 
private void radCalendar1_ElementRender(object sender, RenderElementEventArgs e)
{
    if (WeekNumber(e.Day.Date) == WeekNumber(this.radCalendar1.SelectedDate))
    {
        e.Element.BackColor = Color.WhiteSmoke;
    }
    else
    {
        e.Element.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.BackColorProperty, Telerik.WinControls.ValueResetFlags.Local);
    }
}

Hope this is useful.
