ASP.NET WebForms

Example

.aspx

<daypilot:daypilotmonth 
  id="DayPilotMonth1" 
  runat="server" 
  OnBeforeEventRender="DayPilotMonth1_BeforeEventRender" 
  ...
/>

.aspx.cs

protected void DayPilotMonth1_BeforeEventRender(object sender, BeforeEventRenderEventArgs e)
{
  if ((string)e.DataItem["type"] == "special")  // "type" field must be available in the DataSource
  {
      e.CssClass = "special";
      e.BackgroundColor = "lightyellow";
      e.Html = "<i>WARNING: This is an unusual event.</i><br>" + e.Html;
  }
}

Data source item

The original data source item is available through e.DataItem property.

You can access its fields/properties directly using an indexer:

string type = (string) e.DataItem["type"];

You can also access the original object using e.DataItem.Source:

object source = e.DataItem.Source;

Tags

The Tag property can keep additional event-specific data. You can specify multiple columns of your data source to be stored with the event (DataTagFields):

DataTagFields="type"

These fields are available through the whole object lifecycle (in the server-side and client-side event handlers).

The values are converted to a string.

In the BeforeEventRender event handler you will access these fields using the Tag property:

string type = e.Tag["type"];

ASP.NET MVC

protected override void OnFinish()
{
  if (UpdateType == CallBackUpdateType.None)
  {
    return;
  }

  Events = new EventManager(Controller).Data.AsEnumerable();

  DataStartField = "start";
  DataEndField = "end";
  DataTextField = "name";
  DataValueField = "id";

}

protected override void OnBeforeEventRender(BeforeEventRenderArgs e)
{
  e.Html += " owner:" + e.DataItem["owner"];  // accessing the "owner" field from the data source
  e.BackgroundColor = (string) e.DataItem["color"];
}
