Create Event Calender


In this post we’ll see how to use the Calendar Control in a Webform.

The Calendar Control shows the Current Month Dates and the Dates also of the previous and Next Month.


Firstly, we’ll show only the Dates of Current Month and
Secondly based on the EventDate we’ll highlight the Date in the Calendar Control 
On selecting the Date we’ll show more information of about the Event on that Day. 

The table’s field in Database Data is stored as:
1) EventId (int , PK)
2) EventName
3) EventLocation
4) EventDate
To begin with User Interface Drag and drop

Calendar Control
DataGrid control

<asp:Calendar id="Calendar1" OnDayRender="CalendarDRender" runat="server" BorderWidth="1px" NextPrevFormat="FullMonth" BackColor="White" Width="350px"ForeColor="Black" Height="190px" Font-Size="9pt" Font-Names="Verdana" BorderColor="White">
<TodayDayStyle BackColor="#CCCCCC"></TodayDayStyle>
<NextPrevStyle Font-Size="8pt" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" VerticalAlign="Bottom"></NextPrevStyle>
<DayHeaderStyle Font-Size="8pt" Font-Bold="True"></DayHeaderStyle>
<SelectedDayStyle ForeColor="White" BackColor="#333399"></SelectedDayStyle>
<TitleStyle Font-Size="12pt" Font-Bold="True" BorderWidth="4px" ForeColor="#333399" BorderColor="Black" BackColor="White"></TitleStyle>
<OtherMonthDayStyle ForeColor="#999999"></OtherMonthDayStyle>

<asp: DataGrid id="DataGrid1" style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 23px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 271px" runat="server" Font-Size="XX-Small" Font-Names="Verdana" Visible="False"></asp: DataGrid>

Now our code :

Check for it the Date is from OtherMonth
Navigate through the DataSet if Date is not from other month
Check if the date is null
If not Set the BackColor for the Date based on the value in the DataBase
In Calendar1_SelectionChanged

Based on the date Selected in the Calendar Control display the Data in the Datagrid.

C# Code

SqlConnection mycn;
SqlDataAdapter myda;
DataSet ds = new DataSet ();
DataSet dsSelDate;
String strConn;

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
// Put user code to initialize the page here
strConn="Data Source=localhost;uid=sa;pwd=;Initial Catalog=database";
mycn = new SqlConnection(strConn);
myda = new SqlDataAdapter ("Select * FROM EventsTable", mycn);
myda.Fill (ds,"Table");

protected void CalendarDRender(object sender ,System.Web.UI.WebControls.DayRenderEventArgs e )
// If the month is CurrentMonth
if (! e.Day.IsOtherMonth )
foreach (DataRow dr in ds.Tables[0].Rows)
if ((dr["EventDate"].ToString() != DBNull.Value.ToString()))
DateTime dtEvent= (DateTime)dr["EventDate"];
if (dtEvent.Equals(e.Day.Date))
e.Cell.BackColor = Color.PaleVioletRed;
//If the month is not CurrentMonth then hide the Dates
e.Cell.Text = "";

private void Calendar1_SelectionChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
myda = new SqlDataAdapter("Select * from EventsTable where EventDate='" + Calendar1.SelectedDate.ToString() + "'", mycn);
dsSelDate = new DataSet();
myda.Fill(dsSelDate, "AllTables");
if (dsSelDate.Tables[0].Rows.Count == 0 )
DataGrid1.Visible = false;
DataGrid1.Visible = true;
DataGrid1.DataSource = dsSelDate;
DataGrid1.DataBind ();

Hope this helps

Good Luck
