Calendar Caption Font Size

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Using the Calendar control, is it possible to set a custom font style and size independent of the rest of the control?

I presently use the following in my page;

<asp:Calendar ID="Calendar1" runat="server" BackColor="#D4CAAF" 
            BorderColor="Black" BorderWidth="1px" Font-Names="Segoe UI" Font-Size="9pt" 
            ForeColor="Black" Height="140px" NextPrevFormat="ShortMonth" Width="200px" 
            SelectionMode="None" BorderStyle="Solid" 
            Caption="Calendar of Events" CaptionAlign="Top" ToolTip=" ">
            <SelectedDayStyle BackColor="#DDD5BE" ForeColor="White" />
            <SelectorStyle Font-Bold="False" />
            <TodayDayStyle BackColor="#D4CAAF" Font-Bold="True" 
                Font-Names="Segoe UI" Font-Size="14px" />
            <OtherMonthDayStyle ForeColor="#999999" />
            <NextPrevStyle Font-Bold="True" Font-Size="8pt" ForeColor="#F9F9D2" 
                VerticalAlign="Bottom" />
            <DayHeaderStyle Font-Bold="True" Font-Size="8pt"

DatePicker calendar font size

Due to the fact that we have globally changed the TextBlock size, the DatePicker calendar does not display properly. The month at the top is too big and is getting cut off.   Is there a way to either override the font  size for the DatePicker to have its normal size or to directly set the size through a style? I tried this:   <Style TargetType="{x:Type CalendarItem}">     <Setter Property="TextElement.FontSize" Value="10"/> </Style>   But it didn't work. I could override the entire CalendarItem template but I'd rather not.

Is there a way to have a different font size other than the drop down menu of Editing Tools > Format Text of: 8, 10, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 72 pt ?   As a designer, I feel handcuffed with just these options.

Changing font size for all text in DataView webpart?

I'm in SharePoint designer. Would you know what class I need to change the font tag on to impact the size of font for the entire dataview? I've tried the DataFormwebpart, the webzone, the table. No luck. And when I change the ms-vh or ms-vb it only changes it it on the tr or td selected.

Button height doesn't increase with larger font size

Hi, I've got a couple buttons in a StackPanel that aren't increasing when I increase the font size. I think it has to do with the VerticalAlignment but I'm not catching what's going on. Here is the xaml: <StackPanel Grid.Row="3" Grid.RowSpan="1" Height="Auto" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Name="stackPanel1" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Width="Auto" Orientation="Horizontal"> <Button Background="#FF7F3F96" BorderBrush="{x:Null}" Content="exit" FontFamily="Myriad Pro" FontSize="12" Foreground="White" Width="Auto" MinWidth="74" Margin="23,8,11,9" /> <Button BorderBrush="{x:Null}" Content="new" FontFamily="Myriad Pro" FontSize="12" Foreground="White" RenderTransformOrigin="-0.243,0.516" Width="Auto" MinWidth="74" Margin="11,8,11,9"> <Button.Background> <SolidColorBrush Color="{DynamicResource Green}" /> </Button.Background> </Button> </StackPanel>

Make font size relative to container or browser size?


Is there any way to make font size a percentage of the size of either the parent container or the browser window viewport? Having fixed-width fonts inside variable-width containers is causing the layout to break.

Designer Font Size Appears Much Larger Than When Viewed in Actual Website


I have Visual Studio 2010 Pro on both my desktop and laptop and have the preferences/settings the same for each installation.  On my desktop, when I view a webpage I've created in the Designer, the font size in a <p> tag appears consistent with how it looks on the page in the published website.  On the laptop, however, the <p> tag font size appears much larger in the Designer, but correct when published.  With the settings the same on both the desktop installation and the laptop, any ideas what I need to tweak so <p> tag text size appears the same in the Designer as on the published site?  The CSS is identical on both the desktop and laptop installations.

Thanks in advance...

Reuse a gridview within calendar control


Hello, I have a calendar control that will have events displayed within each cell.

I want to use a pre formatted gridview and simply bind the gridview with a dataset dynamically and display it within the cell of the specified day.

Is there a way to do that or do I have to dynamically build a gridview for every day that there is an event? 

So here is the template gridview and datasource:

 <asp:SqlDataSource ID="sqlcalitemtemp" runat="server" 
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:NNTrainingdbconnection %>" 
        SelectCommand="SELECT NN_Fire_Events.Start_Time, NN_Fire_Events.End_Time, tblNN_Fire_Cli

Detect Browser Screen Size??


Hi Everyone,  I need to detect the size of the user's screen for mobile devices (especially the BlackBerry). I've read a lot of pages that seem to refer me to the Request.Browser object, but I'm finding that this object doesn't have the correct values. For example, I have a BlackBerry and when I use the Request.Browser to get the screen size, it tells me it is 640x480. Well, I know it's not that big since an image of 300px wide just barely fits. Also, when I run on my desktop browser, it also says my screen is 640x480. I can assure you, it is not 640x480! ha!

  How does anyone reliably get the browser's screen size?? Do I have to revert to some kind of JavaScript? If so, where can I read more about it? Will it be any more reliable? Someone must have an idea about this. Thanks in advance!!
