Customization

Styling Calendar

There is a possibility to make changes in the look and feel of a calendar. For example, change its background color:

Related sample: Calendar. Styling (custom CSS)

For this you need to take the following steps:

  • add a new CSS class(es) with desired settings in the <style> section of your HTML page or in your file with styles (don't forget to include your file on the page in this case)
<style>
.my_first_class {
/*some styles*/
}

.my_second_class {
/*some styles*/
}
</style>
  • specify the name of the created CSS class (or names of classes separated by spaces) as the value of the css property in the Calendar configuration:
const calendar = new dhx.Calendar("calendar_container", {
css:"my_first_class my_second_class"
});

For example:

<style>
.bg-grey {
background: #efefef;
}
</style>

const calendar = new dhx.Calendar("calendar_container", {
css: "bg-grey dhx_calendar--bordered"
});

Styling selected dates

Related sample: Calendar. Custom styles for selected date

You can apply custom styling to dates selected in a calender as well as to date ranges. There are system styles you need to change for this purpose:

<style>
/* system style for selected dates */
.dhx_calendar-day--selected::before {
background-color: #ff5252;
}

/* system style for a date range */
.dhx_calendar-day--in-range:after {
background-color: #ffe7e7;
}
</style>

const calendar1 = new dhx.Calendar("calendar1", {css: "dhx_widget--bordered"});
const calendar2 = new dhx.Calendar("calendar2", {css: "dhx_widget--bordered"});
