Remove Hyperlink from ASP.NET Calendar

I have an ASP.Net Calendar. I'd like the Calendar to display the dates without the hyperlink and when the user hovers a date it should show the hyperlink. I tried CSS it didnt work, i tried coding it in the Day_Render event, that didnt work either.

This is the code:

    Protected Sub Calendar1_DayRender(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DayRenderEventArgs) Handles Calendar1.DayRender
        e.Cell.Style.Add("textDecoration", "none")
    End Sub

the rendered html:
</td><td class="calendar" align="center" style="color:DarkGray;font-size:7.5pt;width:14%;textDecoration:none;"><a href="javascript:__doPostBack('Calendar1','3068')" style="color:DarkGray" title="May 26">26</a>

i dont need to remove the anchor tag. i just dont want the "underline" to come which as far as i know is removed by coding text-decoration:none. but this solution doesnt seem to be working.

as for the anchor element, it's generated during the run time. there's no javascript involved. it's the standard asp.net calendar which behaves this way.

IF you dont want any A in table you could do this from CSS like this:

.classNameForYourCalendar a
{
display:none;
}


IF you want only to turn off this A, you could add ID parameter for this element like <a href="..." id="turnMeOff"> </a>  and then turn it off from CSS:
#turnMeOff
{
  display:none
}

You could turn it off from JS too, but I think that you dont need that :)

hope it helps

Nope doesn't work. Nothing happens. it still gives the same output:

<td class="calendar" align="center" style="font-size:7.5pt;width:14%;textDecoration:none;"><a href="javascript:__doPostBack('Calendar1','3075')" style="color:#006699" title="June 02">2</a></td>

digitalZo,
Try this and let me know how it goes:

Add a style in the head of your page. Also, add class="day" to each applicable anchor element.


<style type="text/css">
 
td.calendar a.day
{
	text-decoration: none !important;
}
 
td.calendar a.day:hover
{
	text-decoration: underline !important;
	color: #0000FF !important;
}
 
</style>

Open in new window

If you mean that text output is not changed - this is correct behaviour. If you would like to get rid of this, you would have to change it in code somewhere hmm... could be difficult. I just provided you code from CSS that will not display it. If you want trully erase this you have two choices - changing hard coded script, or do a workover in Javascript, that after creating this element - finds correct one and remove it by using .removeChild. Second might be more easy to do, but both are difficult. If you dont know how to do this just stick with CSS and everything will be OK i think... Hope it helps

 How do I add the day class to the anchor element? The anchor element is rendered during run time.

This is the ASP.Net calendar code:

  <asp:Calendar ID="Calendar1" runat="server" BackColor="White" BorderColor="#006699" CellPadding="1" DayNameFormat="Shortest" Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="8pt" ForeColor="#006699" Height="159px" Width="165px" NextMonthText="" PrevMonthText="">
            <SelectedDayStyle BackColor="#76ACC8" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
            <SelectorStyle BackColor="#006699" ForeColor="White" />
            <WeekendDayStyle BackColor="#006699" ForeColor="White" />
            <OtherMonthDayStyle ForeColor="DarkGray" />
            <NextPrevStyle Font-Size="8pt" ForeColor="White" />
            <DayHeaderStyle BackColor="#76ACC8" ForeColor="White" Height="1px" Font-Size="7.5pt" />
            <TitleStyle BackColor="#006699" BorderWidth="1px" Font-Bold="True" Font-Size="8pt"
                ForeColor="White" Height="25px" />
            <DayStyle Font-Size="7.5pt" CssClass="day" />
           
         </asp:Calendar>

Sorry, I meant it's not displaying the Calendar without hyperlinks even when I added your code

Hmmm it might be because of javascript styling overwrites CSS styles, in that case you have two choices - do a routine in JS, or look inside ASP libary, both options are ... stupid.. i know, but what to do ?. You could do something like this:

in onload event just fire your routine in javascript, that will localise this anchor element and remove it from calendar via .removeChild, for example:

<div> some container:
<a href="blabla" id="removeME"> some anchor </a>

</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
document.getElementById('removeME').parentNode.removeChild(document.getElementById('removeME'));
</script>

<<<<<div> some container:

</div>>>>>>>

the anchor tag is generated during runtime. how do i add the ID in that case?

personally tho, wilq32, removing the anchor tag is not the right solution i feel. if the anchor tag is removed it wont select the date and do a postback will it?

anchor is only a control element. You could fire its event in other way (of course if you want to). What .js you include in your html ASP.NET ?? I think that i will have to look into their libary to remove this anchor... But do you really need to remove it? maybe some other option would be good?
