Remarks

Use the Cell property to programmatically control the cell being rendered in the Calendar control.

You can customize the contents of a cell by dynamically adding controls to the Control.Controls collection of the Cell property.

Note

Because the DayRender event is raised while the Calendar control is being rendered, you cannot add a control that can also raise an event, such as LinkButton. You can add only static controls, such as LiteralControl, Label, Image, and HyperLink.
