How to: Add Custom Holidays

The following example demonstrates how to add custom holidays to your scheduling application. For this you need to create a Holiday object for every custom holiday, and add it to the SchedulerControl.WorkDays collection.

The code below demonstrates how to define a collection of custom holidays in the USA for 2007, and how to add them to the Scheduler Control.

For example, these holidays may be added when a form containing a Scheduler Control is loaded.

When a holiday is added to the SchedulerControl.WorkDays collection, the Date Navigator shows these holidays in Red (if its DateNavigator.HighlightHolidays property is set to true). In addition, it may be required to mark holidays when they are displayed within a Scheduler Control. For example, you may handle the SchedulerControl.CustomDrawDayHeader event, and add the holiday's name to the header's caption, as shown in the code below.
