Hi sonam,

You should  use DayTemplateSelector in order to apply different style to the special days. I've attached an example to demonstrate the approach.

Hope this helps.

hello Telerik,
thanks a lot for answering it...
i have implemented my problem in the same way u have suggested.. and it's working well with radcalender.
but when i tried it in raddatepicker , nothing is getting highlighted.
my xaml for raddatepicker is-
<UserControl xmlns:telerik="http://schemas.telerik.com/2008/xaml/presentation"  x:Class="datepickerexp.MainPage"
    xmlns:local="clr-namespace:datepickerexp"
    mc:Ignorable="d"
    d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="400">
  <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
        <Grid.Resources>
            <local:CustomTemplateSelector x:Key="CustomTemplateSelector">
                <local:CustomTemplateSelector.SpecialTemplate>
            <DataTemplate>
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding Text}" Foreground="Red" FontWeight="Bold" />
        </DataTemplate>
                </local:CustomTemplateSelector.SpecialTemplate>
            </local:CustomTemplateSelector>
              
        </Grid.Resources>
        <telerik:RadDatePicker x:Name="dpAsofDate" 
                               Grid.Row="0"
                               DayTemplate="{x:Null}"
                               Grid.Column="4" 
                               Grid.ColumnSpan="3" 
                               Width="100" Height="25" 
                               HorizontalAlignment="Left"
                               DateSelectionMode="Day" 
                               IsDropDownOpen="True"
                               DayTemplateSelector="{StaticResource CustomTemplateSelector}">
            <telerik:RadDatePicker.CalendarStyle>
                <Style TargetType="telerik:RadCalendar"/>    </telerik:RadDatePicker.CalendarStyle>
        </telerik:RadDatePicker>
           </Grid>
</UserControl>

and my CustomTemplateSelector.cs is-
namespace datepickerexp
{
    public class CustomTemplateSelector : DataTemplateSelector
    {
        public DataTemplate SpecialTemplate
        {
            get;
            set;
        }
  
        public override DataTemplate SelectTemplate(object item, DependencyObject container)
        {
            List<DateTime> lsdate = GetDate();
            CalendarButtonContent content = item as CalendarButtonContent;
            if (content != null)
            {
                 
                foreach (DateTime dt in lsdate)
                {
                    if (content.Date.Day == dt.Day && content.Date.Month == dt.Month && content.Date.Year == dt.Year)
                    {
                        return this.SpecialTemplate;
  
                    }
                }
            }
            return base.SelectTemplate(item, container);
        }
        public List<DateTime> GetDate()
        {
            List<DateTime> lsdateTime = new List<DateTime>();
            lsdateTime.Add(DateTime.Today.Date);
            DateTime dt = new DateTime(2011, 04, 17);
            DateTime dt1 = new DateTime(2011, 04, 15);
            DateTime dt2 = new DateTime(2011, 05, 26);
            lsdateTime.Add(dt); lsdateTime.Add(dt1); lsdateTime.Add(dt2);
            return lsdateTime;
  
        }
    }
}
please look after the issue as soon as possible..thanks in advance!!!

Hi sonam,

You should set the CustomTemplateSelector like this:

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot"  Background="White">
    <Grid.Resources>
        <local:CustomTemplateSelector x:Key="CustomTemplateSelector">
            <local:CustomTemplateSelector.SpecialTemplate>
                <DataTemplate>
                    <TextBlock Text="{Binding Text}" Foreground="Red" FontWeight="Bold" />
                </DataTemplate>
            </local:CustomTemplateSelector.SpecialTemplate>
        </local:CustomTemplateSelector>
 
    </Grid.Resources>
    <telerik:RadDatePicker x:Name="dpAsofDate"
                            Grid.Row="0"                            
                            Grid.Column="4"
                            Grid.ColumnSpan="3"
                            Width="100" Height="25"
                            HorizontalAlignment="Left"
                            DateSelectionMode="Day"
                            IsDropDownOpen="True" >
        <telerik:RadDatePicker.CalendarStyle>
            <Style TargetType="telerik:RadCalendar">
                <Setter Property="DayTemplateSelector" Value="{StaticResource CustomTemplateSelector}" />
            </Style>
        </telerik:RadDatePicker.CalendarStyle>
    </telerik:RadDatePicker>
</Grid>

Try it and let us know the result.

Kind regards,

Hi sonam,

Could you please clarify which vertical column you mean? If it's the week number column, it can be easily removed like this:

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


Best wishes,
