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" 
});

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