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:
var calendar = new dhx.Calendar({    css:"my_first_class my_second_class"});

For example:

<style>    .bg-grey {        background: #efefef;    }</style>
var calendar = new dhx.Calendar("calendar", {     css: "bg-grey dhx_calendar--bordered" });

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