About this task

You can apply field styles for the table that a calendar is based on or field styles for the Task [task] table to a calendar. The field styles that are applied for calendar highlighting depends on the glide.ui.report.extend_calendar_choices system property. See Override Task table field styles for highlighting calendar events for more information.

You can change only the background color of calendar events. All other CSS is ignored. Events without a defined field style display a white background when highlighting is applied to a calendar report.

Procedure

Define field styles for the appropriate table.
  • To define field styles for all calendar reports, define the style on the Task [task] table.
  • To define field styles that apply only to calendars that are a based on a specific table or report source, define the field styles on that table.
If calendar reports are configured to use field styles from their tables or report sources, these field styles override the Task [task] table styles.
