Customize ASP.NET's Calendar-control

Posted on 2002-04-01

In ASP.NET I would like to change to SelectWeekText to actual weeknumbers. Default is to set this property to some static HTML text, but in the OnDayRender event you can customize some more. I would like to change the text in the cell to the left which contains links to select the whole week, to contain weeknumbers.

What have you tried so far?
The text that you set for SelecteWeekText can be anything from a static text to an actual HTML tag.

StaticWeekText = "Next"


StaticWeekText = ">img src="foo.jpg"<"

So in OnDayRender, you can always set the attribute for the cell so that it gets aligned left. Is that what you are looking for?

Picture this:
You add a Calendar control to your page.
You set the property SelectMode = "DayWeek".
You set the SelectWeekText = "WEEK".

Now you have a calendar control in which you can either select a specific day OR select a whole week by clicking the text WEEK which we declared above.

Now, I want the text WEEK replaced by the actual numer of the week for the weeks displayed in the calendar.

So instead of having a calendar with 6 links saying "WEEK" to select that week, I would like to have 6 links saying "week 14", "week 15", "week 16" and so on.

I tried refering to the "WEEK" cell in OnDayRender but it only triggers on DAY-cells, not on the week-cell.

Get it...?

It seems you are out of luck for this. BEcause Calendar control does have any event for week selectors. If you look at the implementation of Calendar control, you will find that it does not allow for customization of the selector cells other than that you can specify the text or html tags that you want to display.

I thought of implementing a javascript in SelectWeekText which creates a unique weeknumber for each run. I tried it quick'n'dirty and it should work, I only made it increment a number, but that number could be weeknumbers. So that works, but not in a pretty way.

This question has been abandoned. I will make a recommendation to the moderators on its resolution in a week or two. I appreciate any comments that would help me to make a recommendation.

In the absence of responses, I may recommend DELETE unless it is clear to me that it has value as a PAQ. Silence = you don't care
