Target cell based on event type?

Asked by Tom

Is there a way to target the cell which an event is in? I need to add a custom background colour for the cell based on what type of event is on that day.

This is in regard to using the calendar in month view.

You can use onBeforeCellRender event like this:

dp.onBeforeCellRender = function(args) {
  var events =, args.cell.end);

  // check events array for event types....
  // ...
  // has events?
  var hasEvents = !events.isEmpty();
  if (hasEvents) {
    args.cell.cssClass = "has-events";
