This example illustrates how to use templates to customize the appearance of the scheduler events. You can use the eventTemplate setting to create a template for the scheduler’s events. Other template settings provided by the widget are allDayEventTemplate, dateHeaderTemplate, groupHeaderTemplate, majorTimeHeaderTemplate and minorTimeHeaderTemplate.

Templates use a simple templating syntax where the hash # symbol is used to mark areas in a template that should be replaced with data when the template is executed. The # character is also used to signify the beginning and end of custom JavaScript code inside the template.

There are three ways to use the hash syntax:

  1. Render values as HTML: #= #
  2. Uses HTML encoding to display values: #: #
  3. Execute arbitrary JavaScript code: # if (true) { # ... non-script content here ... # } #

You can find more information about the templates in this article: Kendo UI Templates Overview.
