Calendar - Make delete icon stay on event

Asked by Anonymous
1 month ago.

On the calendar, the delete (X) icon doesn't show up until a user hovers over the event.

Without pointing to the event, the user won't know where the delete icon is. Is there any way I can make it stay on the event?

If you disable the built-in delete icon using eventDeleteHandling="Disabled" you will be able to add a custom icon using active areas. See also an example in the docs (

<div id="dp"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
  var dp = new DayPilot.Scheduler("dp");
  dp.onBeforeEventRender = function(args) { = [
        top: 3,
        right: 2,
        bottom: 9,
        width: 17,
        onClick: function(args) {; },
        visibility: "Visible",
        css: "event_action_delete"
  // ...

Use visibility: "Visible" to make sure that the icon is always visible.

Thanks, however, the class event_action_delete has no associated styles according to Chrome inspector. Maybe they changed the styles since they made the tutorial? It just looks like a blank space.

Fixed now. I just used a font awesome icon and everything works great.
