The Calendar component highlights the current position of the mouse in the calendar grid using a crosshair.

The Calendar supports two modes:

  • "Header" mode: By default, it only highlights the current position in the vertical and horizontal header.
  • "Full" mode: The crosshair can highlight the full row and column.

You can also turn it the crosshair off (crosshairType: "Disabled").

Note that in the "Full" mode, it blocks access to active areas that are inserted into the Calendar grid cells. They will be visible but the hover and click actions will not be fired.
