Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean true

true, to apply the ‘today cell’ appearance; otherwise, false.


Depending on the HighlightTodayCellWhenSelected property value, you can get one of the following behaviors.

  • If this property equals true, the cell that corresponds to the current date will be painted as a ‘Today cell’ even upon selection. This also means the cell should not be highlighted at all if the CalendarControlBase.HighlightTodayCell property is set to DefaultBoolean.False.
  • When the HighlightTodayCellWhenSelected property is set to false, a selected Today cell will be highlighted in the same manner as any other regular selected cell. In this scenario, the ‘Today cell’ has its unique appearance only when not selected.
