Calendar.DayRender Event

Occurs when each day is created in the control hierarchy for the Calendar control.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

'Declaration
Public Event DayRender As DayRenderEventHandler
<asp:Calendar OnDayRender="DayRenderEventHandler" />

This event is raised when each day is created in the control hierarchy for the Calendar control.

Although data binding is not supported for the Calendar control, it is possible to modify the content and formatting of the individual date cells. Before the Calendar control is displayed on the Web page, it creates and assembles the components that make up the control. The DayRender event is raised when each date cell in the Calendar control is created. You can control the contents and formatting of a date cell when it is created by providing code in the event handler for the DayRender event. For more information on customizing the contents of a date cell, see OnDayRender.

NoteNote

Because the DayRender event is raised while the Calendar control is being rendered, you cannot add a control that can also raise an event, such as LinkButton. You can only add static controls, such as System.Web.UI.LiteralControl, Label, Image, and HyperLink.

For more information about handling events, see Events and Delegates.

The following code example demonstrates how to specify and code a handler for the DayRender event to make the background color yellow for the days in the displayed month. It also demonstrates how to customize the contents of a cell by adding a System.Web.UI.LiteralControl control to the cell.
