Cell Customization

The cells of the Scheduler can be easily customized either using the cell template or RenderCell event.

Setting cell dimensions in all views

The height and width of the Scheduler cells can be customized either to increase or reduce its size through the cssClass property, which overrides the default CSS applied on cells.

Check for cell availability

You can check whether the given time range slots are available for event creation or already occupied by other events using the isSlotAvailable method. In the following code example, if a specific time slot already contains an appointment, then no more appointments can be added to that cell.

Customizing cells in all the views

It is possible to customize the appearance of the cells using both template options and renderCell event on all the views.

Using template

The cellTemplate option accepts the template string and is used to customize the cell background with specific images or appropriate text on the given date values.
