The CalendarTitleBackColor property defines the color to be used for the background of the calendar's title.


This property does not work on the Windows 8.1/10 operating system.

In a painter

Select a color from the CalendarTitleBackColor drop-down list on the Calendar page in the Properties view.

In scripts

The CalendarTitleBackColor property takes a long (-2 to 16,777,215) that specifies the numerical value of the background color of the month or months in a calendar. The CalendarTitleBackColor value is a combination of values for the red, green, and blue components of the color.

If you do not know the long value for the color, choose Design>Custom Colors to determine the red, green, and blue values and then call the RGB function to specify the color in a script.

The following example sets pale green as the background color for titles:

dp_1.CalendarTitleBackColor = RGB(128, 255, 128)
