    I have a radcalendar that has EnableMultiSelect="true" and UseColumnHeadersAsSelectors="true". When a user clicks on the column header, I need to know if the click is going to select or deselect the dates. OnDateClick event has a get_isSelected() method I can use to determine if the clicked date is selected or not selected. Similarly, I want to know if the column header click is to select or deselect the respective dates.

    Thank you,

    Hello Vithiya,

    When the RadCalendar.UseColumnHeadersAsSelectors property is set to true and user clicks on the header all dates under the header are selected, not the header item. So the header item does not keep any state for selection.

    To achieve the desired functionality you could try the following approach:
    When the user clicks on the header's item you could handle the OnDateSelected event and set a boolean flag to the value returned from eventArgs.get_renderDay().get_isSelected() method. In that way you could know if the dates under the header item is selected or deselected:

    <script type="text/javascript">
     var isHeaderSelectDates = false;
     function onDateSelected(sender, eventArgs) {
          isHeaderSelectDates= eventArgs.get_renderDay().get_isSelected();
     function onColumnHeaderClick(sender, eventArgs) {
       setTimeout(function() {
          if (isHeaderSelectDates) {
              alert("Selecting dates");
          else {
              alert("Deselecting dates");
       }, 30);

    Also I attached a small runnable application which demonstrates how to achieve the desired scenario.

    I hope this helps.
