Disable Weekends in ASP.NET Calendar Control

While using the ASP.NET Calendar Control, a common requirement is to prevent the users from selecting any dates that fall on a weekend (Saturday & Sunday). Here’s how to do so by using the DayRender event of the ASP.NET Calendar control.

<asp:Calendar ID="wkDayCalendar" runat="server"
ondayrender="wkDayCalendar_DayRender" >


protected void wkDayCalendar_DayRender(object sender,
DayRenderEventArgs e)
e.Day.IsSelectable = !e.Day.IsWeekend;


Protected Sub wkDayCalendar_DayRender(ByVal sender As Object,
ByVal e As DayRenderEventArgs)
e.Day.IsSelectable = Not e.Day.IsWeekend
End Sub


As you can see, the user cannot select any dates from the weekend as it is not selectable any more.

Thank you. Can't get any simpler than that for a solution.
