Colors for different Appointments

Using the XamSchedule in MVVM, is there a way to programmatically assign colors to different appointments? 


Appointment apt = new Appointment();
if (myItem.type == "Sports")
       apt.Color = Colors.Blue;

    Hello PMac,

    In order to change the fill color of an appointment in the XamSchedule (for example when using XamOutlookCalendarView), an approach I can suggest you is to simply get the respective Path element of the AppointmentPresenter element (visual representation of the Appointment) and set it's Fill property.

    For example:


        <Style TargetType="{x:Type igPrim:AppointmentPresenter}">
            <EventSetter Event="Loaded" Handler="AppointmentPresenter_Loaded" />


    void AppointmentPresenter_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        var appointmentPresenter = (sender as AppointmentPresenter);
        var activitySubject = (appointmentPresenter.Activity as Appointment).Subject as string;

        if (activitySubject == "HR Consulting")
            var mainGrid = Utilities.GetDescendantFromType(appointmentPresenter, typeof(Grid), false) as Grid;
            var innerGrid = Utilities.GetDescendantFromType(mainGrid, typeof(Grid), false) as Grid;

            var borderPath = Utilities.GetDescendantFromType(innerGrid, typeof(Path), false) as Path;
            borderPath.Fill = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.DarkOrange);

    I have attached a sample application, that uses the approach from above.

    If you have any further questions on the matter, please let me know.
