CalendarDay.IsWeekend Property

Gets a value that indicates whether the date represented by an instance of this class is a either Saturday or Sunday. This property is read-only.

[Visual Basic]
Public ReadOnly Property IsWeekend As Boolean
[C#]
public bool IsWeekend {get;}
[C++]
public: __property bool get_IsWeekend();
[JScript]
public function get IsWeekend() : Boolean;

Property Value

true if the date represented by an instance of this class is either a Saturday or a Sunday; otherwise, false.

Remarks

Use the IsWeekend property to programmatically determine whether the date represented by an instance of this class is either a Saturday or a Sunday. This allows you to programmatically control the appearance or behavior of the day, based on this value.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, JScript] The following example demonstrates how to use the properties of a CalendarDay object to determine whether the date being rendered in the DayRender event is in the displayed month and are not either a Saturday or a Sunday. These dates are displayed in yellow. Note that the Day property of the DayRenderEventArgs object passed into the DayRender event handler is the CalendarDay object.
