How to migrate from previous version to 1.4.0?

We have renamed setOnPreviousButtonClickListener() and setOnForwardButtonClickListener() so please refer to Previous and forward buttons listeners.

How to use?

Make sure you are using the newest com.android.support:appcompat-v7.

Make sure you have defined the jcenter() repository in project's build.gradle file:

allprojects {
    repositories {

Add the dependency to module's build.gradle file:

dependencies {
    compile 'com.applandeo:material-calendar-view:1.4.0'

To your XML layout file add:

    android:layout_height="match_parent" />

Adding events with icons:

List<EventDay> events = new ArrayList<>();

Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
events.add(new EventDay(calendar, R.drawable.sample_icon));

CalendarView calendarView = (CalendarView) findViewById(R.id.calendarView);

Clicks handling:

calendarView.setOnDayClickListener(new OnDayClickListener() {
    public void onDayClick(EventDay eventDay) {
        Calendar clickedDayCalendar = eventDay.getCalendar();    

Getting a selected days in the picker mode:

If you want to get all selected days, especially if you use multi date or range picker you should use the following code:

List<Calendar> selectedDates = calendarView.getSelectedDates();

...or if you want to get the first selected day, for example in case of using single date picker, you can use:

Calendar selectedDate = calendarView.getFirstSelectedDate();

Setting a current date:

Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance();
calendar.set(2019, 7, 5);

Setting minumum and maximum dates:

Calendar min = Calendar.getInstance();
Calendar max = Calendar.getInstance();


Setting disabled dates:

List<Calendar> calendars = new ArrayList<>();

Previous and forward page change listeners:

calendarView.setOnPreviousPageChangeListener(new OnCalendarPageChangeListener() {
    public void onChange() {

calendarView.setOnForwardPageChangeListener(new OnCalendarPageChangeListener() {
    public void onChange() {


If you want to use calendar in the picker mode, you have to use the following tags:

  • app:type="one_day_picker"
  • app:type="many_days_picker"
  • app:type="range_picker"

Colors customization:

  • Header color: app:headerColor="[color]"
  • Header label color: app:headerLabelColor="[color]"
  • Previous button image resource: app:previousButtonSrc="[drawable]"
  • Forward button image resource: app:forwardButtonSrc="[drawable]"
  • Abbreviations bar color: app:abbreviationsBarColor="[color]"
  • Abbreviations labels color: app:abbreviationsLabelsColor="[color]"

To translate months names, abbreviations of days, "TODAY", "OK" and "CANCEL" buttons, just add below tags to your strings.xml file:

To use another picker type replace CalendarView.ONE_DAY_PICKER with CalendarView.MANY_DAYS_PICKER or CalendarView.RANGE_PICKER.

Getting date handling:

private OnSelectDateListener listener = new OnSelectDateListener() {
    public void onSelect(List<Calendar> calendars) {


new DatePickerBuilder(this, listener)
