Hi

I'm trying to customise the RadCalendar, but I do not see how I can change the hover over and selection colors for days when in certain views (E.g. month/week view)

I have tried editing the Template using Blend and also checked out the post at
http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/wpf/calendar/how-to-change-datepicker-monthview-s-header.aspx

which is somewhat relevant, but I do not see any such property.

How should I go about achieving this?



Regards

After scouring the source code (which I am lucky to have) for ages I finally found a relevant theme file (Calendar.xaml) and via trial-and-error I managed to find and adapt it to what I was looking for.

It beggars belief that you do not have articles on something as trivial as theming for all your components (Such as these admitedly very nice knowledge base articles on the Scheduler component) as it would save your clients A LOT of time. Your knowledge base is limited to a handful of WPF components!

Forgive the tone, I just endured a waste of time practically reverse engineering this component (Calendar) due to lack of documentation.

Hi Julian Borthwick,

We will be definitely enhancing our documentation for the next Q3 2009 release. We have major plans for documentation improvements and we will put lots of efforts and resources in this direction. In the end, there will be styling and theming articles for each of our controls.

In the meantime, we will be gladly assist you with any task you want to accomplish when customizing the appearance of our controls.

Sincerely yours,
Nick
