Yes, ScheduleEvent has a styleClass option you can use to display different kinds of events.

You just need to define styleClasses with different background classes and set a different style. DefaultScheduleEvent has a method called setStyleClass(String styleClass) and an overloaded constructor that has a styleClass option.

the CSS "background-color" property is not (guaranteed to be) inherited. so for a simple event style class like "business-event" with a red background, you have to set the background color for the child elements of the event div separately. the following will work (PrimeFaces 3.0.M2, Firefox 5.0):

Code: Select all

.business-event {
	font-weight: bold;
	font-style: italic;
.business-event > a {
	background-color: red;

unfortunatly it does not work for me.

I'm using primefaces 3.0, firefox 3.6 and glassfish 3.1.

Looking around I found in the css this comment

Code: Select all

.fc-agenda .fc-event-time,
.fc-event a {
	border-style: solid;
	border-color: #36c;     /* default BORDER color (probably the same as background-color) */
	background-color: #36c; /* default BACKGROUND color */
	color: #fff;            /* default TEXT color */

	/* Use the 'className' CalEvent property and the following
	 * example CSS to change event color on a per-event basis:
	 * .myclass,
	 * .fc-agenda .myclass .fc-event-time,
	 * .myclass a {
	 *     background-color: black;
	 *     border-color: black;
	 *     color: red;
	 *     }
I try also this solution but with no luck.

Any ideas are very appreciated

I resolved with a awfull solution. I opened the PF 3.0 jar and changed the schedule.css to not use border-color and background-color.

Now the events in the shedule have the colour I defined, so it works, but it is exactly what I did not want to do.

If anyone knows a different solution I will be very happy to rollback this modification.

Thanks in advance

Hi all

I'm facing the same problem. I want to change the background color for some events, but it doesn't work.

I have defined this style:

Code: Select all

.fc-agenda .holiday-event .fc-event-time,
.holiday-event a
   font-weight: bold;
   font-style: italic;
   background-color: red;
   border-color: red;
   color: red;
but the defaut style is always active:

Code: Select all

<div id="globalform:myScheduler_container" class="fc ui-widget">
<div class="fc-content ui-widget-content" style="position: relative; min-height: 1px;">
<div class="fc-view fc-view-agendaWeek fc-agenda" style="position: relative;">
<div class="fc-agenda-head" style="position:relative;z-index:4">
<div class="fc-agenda-body" style="position: relative; z-index: 2; overflow: auto; height: 664px; width: 916px;">
<div style="position: relative; overflow: hidden;">
<table style="width: 899px;">
<div style="position: absolute; z-index: 8; top: 0pt; left: 0pt;">
<div class="fc-event fc-event-vert fc-corner-top fc-corner-bottom " style="position: absolute; z-index: 8; top: 587px; left: 61px; width: 107px; height: 40px;">
<div class="fc-event fc-event-vert fc-corner-top fc-corner-bottom " style="position: absolute; z-index: 8; top: 545px; left: 181px; width: 107px; height: 82px;">
<div class="fc-event fc-event-vert fc-corner-top fc-corner-bottom holiday-event ui-draggable ui-resizable" style="position: absolute; z-index: 8; top: 0px; left: 301px; width: 107px; height: 1004px;">
<span class="fc-event-bg"></span>
<span class="fc-event-time">12:00 - 11:59</span>
<span class="fc-event-title">Ferien1_5</span>
<div class="ui-resizable-handle ui-resizable-s">=</div>
and here the firebug output:

Code: Select all

.fc-event-vert span.fc-event-time {
    border: 0 none;
    font-size: 10px;
    overflow: hidden;
    white-space: nowrap;

.fc-event, .fc-agenda .fc-event-time, .fc-event a {
    background-color: #3366CC;
    border-color: #3366CC;
    border-style: solid;
    color: #FFFFFF;

.fc-event-vert span {
    display: block;
    position: relative;
    z-index: 2;
.fc-event-time, .fc-event-title {
    padding: 0 1px;
Many thanks in advance!

Hi all!

I solved the same problem with the following trick:
It seems to me that css class style 'fc-event-skin' is wrongfully set to the inner div of the event, since it is specified in the primary event div with other classes (and with the custom one, which is set in the controller code for DefaultScheduleEvent).

So I have created new css class like this one
.onlineEvent {
border-color: #F00;
background-color: #F00;
color: #fff;

and set it to the ScheduleEvent in the controller code

DefaultScheduleEvent scheduledEvent = new DefaultScheduleEvent("Title",dateS, dateE );

and removed class definition from the inner diff with jquery code
<script language='javascript'>
function clearEventInnerSkinStyle(){


I hope you can use that solution before primeface developers fix that issue.

you can use this solution to this problem, the trick is in the definition of css class, it must declare like this:
css class :

Code: Select all

.public-event, .public-event .fc-event-skin, .public-event a{
    background-color: green; 
    color: black;
    border-color: greenyellow;
java code :

Code: Select all

event = new DefaultScheduleEvent("public event", start, finish, "public-event");
