    Hey everyone,

    I just started working with the Telerik RadCalendar control, and it looks promising to be able to accomplish what I want. I do, however, seem to be running into an issue. 

    Using the arrow keys and space bar to select/deselect dates works great, but when I use the mouse to do this, it is awkward. I found a post relating to the issue, (http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/winforms/calendar-and-datetimepicker/urgent-radcalendar-not-deselect-dates-correctly.aspx) The Telerik representative mentioned that the reason this felt awkward was because of the "Focus Date" feature. 

    I understand how this works, but would it be possible to somehow change the color of the "Focus Date" part of the calendar? I think this would help my end users tell the difference between the "Focus Date" and a recently deselected/selected cell.

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you for writing.

    You will have to edit the theme of the RadCalendar in order to remove the style of the focused date. I have attached a video with the steps you have to take to make the calendar focused cell to look like a normal cell. Once you have modified the theme you want, remember to save it with an unique name. After you have the new theme, you have to apply it in your application. You can find more information on that in our product documentation on Using Custom Themes

    I hope this will help. If you need further assistance, I would be glad to provide it.
