Vue Component for Scheduler Event Content

First, let’s create a new Vue component (EventContent) that will specify the Scheduler event content:

  • The component uses the <template> section to define two rows of text: the event text and duration in days. In the upper-right corner, there will be an SVG icon.

  • It defines an event prop that will be used to pass a DayPilot.Event object to our component.

  • We also add scoped CSS that will stretch the component to fill its parent element using position: absolute and inset: 0 styles and define a custom background and text color.

In the next step, we are going to insert this component into Scheduler events.


<script setup>
import { DayPilot } from 'daypilot-pro-vue';

const props = defineProps({
  event: DayPilot.Event,


<div class="scheduler-event">
  <div>{{ event.text() }}</div>
  <div>{{ event.duration().totalDays() }} days</div>
  <div style="position: absolute; top: 5px; right: 5px;">
    <svg width='17' height='17' xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg'><path d='m 5,8 3,3 5,-5' style='fill:none;stroke:#ffffff;stroke-width:2;stroke-linejoin:round;stroke-linecap:butt' /></svg>

<style scoped>
.scheduler-event {
  position: absolute;
  inset: 0;
  padding: 5px;
  background-color: #4CAF50;
  color: white;

How to Insert a Vue Component into a Scheduler Event

The Vue Scheduler component lets you customize the event content using the onBeforeEventRender event handler. Using this event handler, you can modify the default appearance and behavior (e.g., add icons, set background color, etc).

In Vue 3, you can also use a custom Vue component to add custom dynamic content.

To insert your own Vue component into Scheduler events, use the onBeforeEventDomAdd event handler.

  • In the event handler, use args.element to specify the Vue component.

  • You can set the component props using args.props.

The Vue component will replace the default event content.

  <DayPilotScheduler :config="config" />

<script setup>
import { DayPilot, DayPilotScheduler } from 'daypilot-pro-vue';
import { ref, reactive, onMounted } from 'vue';
import EventContent from "@/components/EventContent.vue";

const config = reactive({
  // ...
  onBeforeEventDomAdd: args => {
    args.element = EventContent;
    args.props = {
      event: args.e
