Calendar.DayStyle Property

Gets the style properties for the days in the displayed month.

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

[PersistenceModeAttribute(PersistenceMode.InnerProperty)]
public TableItemStyle DayStyle { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.TableItemStyle
A TableItemStyle that contains the style properties for the days in the displayed month. The default value is an empty TableItemStyle.

Use this property to specify the style for the days in the displayed month.

NoteNote

If you do not specify a different style for the selected date, weekend dates, dates not in the currently displayed month, or today's date, these dates will also be displayed using the style specified by the DayStyle property. Use the SelectedDayStyle, WeekendDayStyle, OtherMonthDayStyle, and TodayDayStyle properties to specify alternative styles for these dates.

For more information on the different style properties that can be controlled, see TableItemStyle.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DayStyle property to specify that the days in the currently displayed month are shown in gray.
