Calendar-color

Is there a way to control which colors are used in the calendar view?

I am using the calendar-color tag on a field so that all records with the same value get the same color but the colors are assigned randomly and I need to use specific colors.

I image this is a fairly common requirement (e.g setting particular status values as Red/Amber/Green etc) but I cannot find a way to do it.

    By now, this is a common and urgent question that comes up regularly. COT has no solution for this randomn behaviour and there is no workaround that I know of.
    The same randomn color problem is present in the charts by the way, in case you ever need that :-(

    For most applications this makes calendars and charts useless. Such a shame! Work on it COT!

    AwareIM does this fantastically! Any event on a calendar has conditional styles.
    if Type='Appointment' then xxxx (where you can set any CSS style info)
    if Type='Delivery' then xxxx
    if Type='Pickup' then xxxx

    When I was using Radzen, even though their stuff looked nice, there was absolutely no ability to customize colors on a calendar.

    Certainly there's 'code' to apply conditional CSS to these items!
